I am using Mathematica 5.2.
I wish to do coordinate transformations for differential geometry.
example transform a Grad from a cylindrical system to a Cartesian
In:= << Calculus`VectorAnalysis`;
Out:=Cylindrical[Rr, Ttheta, Zz]
In:= Grad[Cos[Ttheta], Cylindrical[Rr, Ttheta, Zz]]
The above Grad vector refers to the cylindrical system. How can I get
Mathematica to convert it into the corresponding gradient in the
system, which would become:
