Question: Tetrads and expansions

This is probably a question to Edgardo: In another thread, the following quantity is considered [Eqs. (5) and (6) combined]:


This is all very well, but it seems to depend on the metric loaded: if the Schwarzschild metric g_[sc] is loaded, then the above output results, but if the Minkowski metric g_[minkowski] is loaded, then the output of the above expansion is identically zero. Does that make sense? Is that intentional? The explicitly evaluated Ricci rotation coefficients vanish identically for the Minkowski metric, of course, but if evaluation is performed for that case, then why not also for the Schwarschild metric [not meaning to say that I want evaluation]?

Please Wait...
