Curvilinear Coordinates and General Tensors
We devote this chapter to the development of four-dimensional geometry in arbitrary curvilinear coordinates. We shall deal with field quantities. A field quantity has the same nature at all points of space. Such a quantity will be disturbed by the curvature.
