Let’s derive the rule for covariant differentiation of tensor fields in a curvilinear coordinate system. We consider a vectorial field A to begin with. This is a field whose components are specified by one upper index: Ai (u1 , u2 , u3 ). In order to calculate the components of the field B = ∇A we choose some auxiliary Cartesian coordinate system x ˜1 , x ˜2 , x ˜3 . 1) from Chapter II, and finally, we transform the components of ∇A from Cartesian coordinates back to the original curvilinear coordinates.

It is denoted ρ = rot F. 5) the rotor or a vector field F is the contraction of the tensor field ˆ⊗ω⊗g ˆ ⊗ ∇F with respect to four pairs of indices: rot F = C(ˆ ˆ ⊗ ∇F). g g⊗ω⊗g Remark. 11), then the rotor of a vector field should be understood as a pseudovectorial field. Suppose that O, e1 , e2 , e3 is a rectangular Cartesian coordinate system in E with orthonormal right-oriented basis e1 , e2 , e3 . The Gram matrix of the basis e1 , e2 , e3 is the unit matrix. Therefore, we have gij = g ij = δji = 1 for i = j, 0 for i = j.
