Another example on how to calculate Christoffel symbols. This video uses one method to calculate the Christoffel symbols for spherical polar coordinate space. It uses the example of transforming from cartesian to spherical polar coordinates to show how basis vectors change from point to point in the space. This video is a follow up to a previous video which showed two methods for calculating these symbols and is entitled, ‘Calculating Christoffel symbols’.
