Description

This Mathematica Notebook shows basic application of the "tensorial.m" package.

-Special Relativity. In the first part we define the Metric Tensor for the Minkovsky space and later we define the Jacobian Matrix for system's transformation.

-General Relativity. Obtaining of Schawarzschild's differential equations that describe the space curvature produced by a point mass. The program is completely general, so that it could deal with any Metric Tensor proposed.

This notebook requires the "tensorial.m" package that can be downloaded from item 434.
