Question: How to define a metric tensor in 3-d (r, theta, phi)

Helle everybohy,

I need to setup a metric tensor in 3-d but with the varalble r, theta and phi.  So I try this:

>with(Physics); Setup(mathematicalnotation = true, dimension = 3)

>Setup(coordinates = spherical[r, theta, varphi], metric = M)

where M is the metric that I need to use.  But the last command does not work.  Il I don't write [r, theta, varphi], it work but it's r, theta and t.

Any hint on this please?

Thank you in advance for your help.
