Description (last modified by )
This ticket implements pseudoriemannian metrics on infinitely differentiable manifolds (i.e. smooth manifolds) over R. This is a followup of #19147 within the SageManifolds project (see the metaticket #18528 for an overview).
This ticket implements the following Python classes:
PseudoRiemannianMetric
for pseudoRiemannian metrics on a real smooth manifoldPseudoRiemannianMetricParal
for pseudoRiemannian metrics on a real smooth parallelizable manifold
LeviCivitaConnection
for the LeviCivita connection associated with a pseudoRiemannian metric.
Various methods of the above classes allow for the computation of
 the connection coefficients and Christoffel symbols of the LeviCivita connection associated with a given metric
 the Riemann and Ricci tensor of a given metric
 the Ricci scalar of a given metric
 the Weyl tensor of a given metric
 the volume nform associated with a given metric on a ndimensional manifold
 the metric duals of tensor fields (musical isomorphisms)
The user interface is via the method DifferentiableManifold.metric()
. At the user choice, CPUdemanding computations (like that of the Riemann tensor) can be parallelized, thanks to #18100.
