Description (last modified by )
This ticket implements affine connections on infinitely differentiable manifolds (i.e. smooth manifolds) . This is a followup of #19092 within the SageManifolds project (see the metaticket #18528 for an overview). As in #19092, the nondiscrete topological field K over which the smooth manifold is defined is generic, although in most applications, K=R or K=C.
Affine connections are implemented via the Python class AffineConnection
, the user interface being the method DifferentiableManifold.affine_connection()
. At the user choice, CPUdemanding computations (like that of the curvature tensor) can be parallelized, thanks to #18100.
Various methods of the class AffineConnection
allow the computation of
 the connection coefficients with respect to a given vector frame (from those w.r.t. another frame)
 the connection 1forms with respect to a given vector frame
 the torsion tensor
 the torsion 2forms with respect to a given vector frame
 the (Riemann) curvature tensor
 the curvature 2forms with respect to a given vector frame
 the Ricci tensor
 the action of the affine connection on any tensor field

The parallelization is not effective in the latest commit (cf. the discussion starting from comment 74 in #18529). Hence the FIXME comment in the doctest at line 1730 of affine_connection.py
.
