I can has manifold calculus

No. I’m not crazy. Not quite yet. Hehehehe.

I’ve been trying to work with manifold calculus over the past few days, working up to a general understanding of partial differential equations in arbitrary coordinate systems. Differential operators can end up doing some freaky things if your coordinate system isn’t orthonormal.

I’ve also been going through Grassman/Clifford algebra and it’s relation to strictly anti-symmetric tensors. I think I’ve got that roughly down, but the algorithm for evaluating their measure, while it looks pretty elegant in it’s compact form, is not at all nice to compute, or simplify.

Hopefully, once I can get this all down to the point where I can understand it, certain other aspects of things like reletavistic electrodynamics will become clearer.

Still, slow going.

    Thank you for the information. I’m new to wordpress, so it may take me a while to fix these issues.
