Christoffel’s principal contributions to the theory of continued fractions concerned firstly the expression of a real number by means of a characteristic having a close connection with the regular continued fraction for this number, secondly the expression in simple closed form of the convergents of the continued fraction expansion of quotients of Bessel functions of contiguous Cited by: 4.

by: In mathematics and physics, the Christoffel symbols are an array of numbers describing a metric connection. In Euclidean spaces, these numbers describe how the local coordinate bases change from point to point. The metric connection is a specialization of the affine connection to surfaces or other manifolds endowed with a metric, allowing distances to be measured on that surface.

E.B. Christoffel derived an important formula concerning the second derivatives in a coordinate transformation, namely (∂²x m /∂y j ∂y i) = y {ij,r}(∂x m /y r) − x {pq,m}(∂x p /∂y j)(∂x q /∂y i) where x {ij,k} and y {ij,k} stand for the Christoffel symbols of the second kind in the X coordinate system and the Y coordinate.

Basel/Boston/. As a comparison, consider the variation of the Christoffel connection with respect to the metric. $$ \Gamma^\mu_{\nu\rho} = g^{\mu\lambda} \Gamma_{\lambda\nu\rho} = \frac{1}{2} g^{\mu\lambda} \left(\partial_\lambda g_{\nu\rho} + \partial_\nu g_{\rho\lambda} - \partial_\rho g_{\lambda\nu} \right) $$ When varying this expression you will also get a lengthy series of terms, but the trick.

Development of Differential Geometry. Differential geometry was founded by Gaspard Monge and C. Gauss in the beginning of the 19th cent. Important contributions were made by many mathematicians during the 19th cent., including B.
