**Symbolic Tensor Calculus on Manifolds: a SageMath Implementation**

by Eric Gourgoulhon, Marco Mancini

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2018**Number of pages**: 72

**Description**:

These lecture notes present a method for symbolic tensor calculus that (i) runs on fully specified smooth manifolds (described by an atlas), (ii) is not limited to a single coordinate chart or vector frame, (iii) runs even on non-parallelizable manifolds and (iv) is independent of the symbolic engine employed to perform calculus at the level of coordinate expressions.
