1 Chapter 6 Curved spacetime and General Relativity 6.1 Manifolds, tangent spaces and local inertial frames A manifold is a continuous space whose points can be assigned coordinates, the number of coordinates being the dimension of the manifold [ for example a surface of a sphere is 2D, spacetime is 4D ]. A manifold is differentiable if we can define a scalar field φ at each point which can be differentiated everywhere. General Relativity. This is always true in Special Relativity and We can then define one - forms dφ as having components {φ,α φ x α } and vectors V as linear functions which take dφ into the derivative of φ along a curve with tangent V: V ( dφ ) = V φ = φ,α V α = dφ dλ. (6.1) Tensors can then be defined as maps from one - forms and vectors into the reals [ see chapter 3 ]. A Riemannian manifold is a differentiable manifold with a symmetric metric tensor g at each point such that g (V, V) > 0 (6.2) for any vector V, for example Euclidian 3D space. 65

2 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 66 If however g (V, V) is of indefinite sign as it is in Special and General Relativity it is called Pseudo - Riemannian. For a general spacetime with coordinates {x α }, the interval between two neighboring points is ds 2 = g αβ dx α dx β. (6.3) In Special Relativity we can choose Minkowski coordinates such that g αβ = η αβ everywhere. This will not be true for a general curved manifold. Since g αβ is a symmetric matrix, we can always choose a coordinate system at each point x 0 in which it is transformed to the diagonal Minkowski form, i.e. there is a transformation such that gᾱ β(x 0 ) = ηᾱ β = Λᾱβ xᾱ x β (6.4) (6.5) Note that the sum of the diagonal elements is conserved; this is the signature of the metric [ +2 ]. In general Λᾱβ will not diagonalize g αβ at every point since there are ten functions g αβ (x) and only four transformation functions X ᾱ(x β ). x 0 i.e. We can also choose Λᾱβ so that the first derivatives of the metric vanishes at for all α, β and γ. This implies g αβ x γ = 0 (6.6) g αβ (x µ ) = η αβ + O[(x µ ) 2 ]. (6.7) That is, the metric near x 0 is approximately that of Special Relativity, differences being of second order in the coordinates. This corresponds to the local inertial frame whose existence was deduced from the equivalence principle. In summary we can define a local inertial frame to be one where g αβ (x 0 ) = η αβ (6.8)

3 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 67 for all α, β, and for all α, β, γ. However g αβ,γ (x 0 ) = 0 (6.9) g αβ,γµ (x 0 ) 0 (6.10) for at least some values of α. β, γ and µ. It reflects the fact that any curved space has a flat tangent space at every point, although these tangent spaces cannot be meshed together into a global flat space. Recall that straight lines in a flat spacetime are the worldlines of free particles; the absence of first derivative terms in the metric of a curved spacetime will mean that free particles are moving on lines that are locally straight in that coordinate system. This makes such coordinates very useful for us, since the equations of physics will be nearly as simple as they are in flat spacetime, and if they are tensor equations they will be valid in every coordinate system. 6.2 Covariant derivatives and Christoffel symbols In Minkowski spacetime with Minkowski coordinates (t, x, y, z) the derivative of a vector V = V α e α is just V x β = V α x β e α, (6.11) since the basis vectors do not vary. In a general spacetime with arbitrary coordinates, e α which vary from point to point so V x β = V α x β e α + V α e α x β. (6.12) Since e α / x β is itself a vector for a given β it can be written as a linear combination of the bases vectors: e α x β = Γµ αβe µ. (6.13) The Γ s are called Christoffel symbols [ or the metric connection ]. Thus we have: V x β = V α x β e α + V α Γ µ αβe µ, (6.14)

4 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 68 so Thus we can write where ( ) V V α x = β x e β α + V µ Γ α µβ e α. (6.15) V x β = V α ;βe α, (6.16) V α ;β = V α,β + V µ Γ α µβ. (6.17) Let us now prove that V α ;β are the components of a 1/1 tensor. Remember in section 3.5 we found that V α,β was only a tensor under Poincaré transformations in Minkowski space with Minkowski coordinates. V α ;β is the natural generalization for a general coordinate transformation. Writing Λᾱβ xᾱ x β, we have: Now therefore so we obtain: V ᾱ; β = V ᾱ, β + V µ Γᾱ µ β = Λ µ β x (ΛᾱνV ν ) + V µ µ Γᾱ µ β = Λ µ V ν βλᾱν x + V ν Λ µ Λᾱν µ β x + V µ µ Γᾱ µ β. (6.18) e µ x β = Γ λ µ βe λ, (6.19) e µ x β wᾱ = Γ λ µ βe λ wᾱ = Γ λ µ βδᾱ λ = Γᾱ µ β, (6.20) V ᾱ; β = Λ µ V ν βλᾱν x + V ν Λ µ Λᾱν µ β x µ = Λ µ V ν βλᾱν x + V ν Λ µ Λᾱν µ β x µ = Λ µ V ν βλᾱν x + V ν Λ µ Λᾱν µ β x µ µ e µ + V wᾱ x β + Λ µ γv γ Λᾱδ w δ e µ x β + Λ µ γv γ Λᾱδ w δ Λ ɛ β x ɛ (Λν µe ν ) = Λ µ V ν βλᾱν x + V ν Λ µ Λᾱν µ β x + Λ µ γv γ µ Λᾱδ w δ Λ ɛ βλ ν e ν µ x ɛ + Λ µ γv γ Λᾱδ w δ Λ ɛ βe ν Λ ν µ x ɛ (6.21)

5 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 69 Now using Λ ν µλ µ γ = δ ν γ, w δ e ν = δ δ ν and Λᾱν Λν µ x ɛ = Λ ν µ Λᾱν x ɛ we obtain: V ᾱ; β = ΛᾱνΛ µ V ν β x + V ν Λ µ Λᾱν µ β x µ + ΛᾱδΛ ɛ βv ν Γ δ νɛ Λ µ Λᾱν β x V ν µ = ΛᾱνΛ µ V ν β x + ΛᾱδΛ ɛ βv ν Γ δ µ νɛ ( ) V = ΛᾱνΛ µ ν β x + V δ Γ ν µ δµ, (6.22) so V ᾱ; β = ΛᾱνΛ µ βv ν ;µ. (6.23) We have shown that V α ;β are indeed the components of a 1/1 tensor. We write this tensor as V = V α ;βe α w β. (6.24) It is called the covariant derivative of V. Using a Cartesian basis, the components are just V α,β, but this is not true in general; however for a scalar φ we have: since scalars do not depend on basis vectors. α φ φ ;α = φ x α, φ = dφ, (6.25) Writing Γ α µβ = eµ x β w α, we can find the transformation law for the components of the Christoffel symbols. This is just Γ α µβ = e µ x β wα = Λ α γ w γ Λ σ β x σ ( Λ λµ e λ = Λ α γλ σ e λ βλ λ µ w γ + Λα γλ σ x σ β w γ Λ λ µ e λ x σ = Λ α γλ σ βλ λ Γ γ µ λ σ + Λ α λλ σ Λ λ µ β (6.26) x σ Γ α µβ = xα x σ x λ Γ γ x γ x β x µ λ σ + xα 2 x λ x λ x β x. (6.27) µ We can calculate the covariant derivative of a one - form p by using the fact that p(v) is a scalar for any vector V: φ = p α V α. (6.28) )

6 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 70 We have β φ = φ,β = p α x V α V α + p β α x β = p α x V α + p β α V α ;β p α V µ Γ α µβ = ( ) pα x p µγ µ β αβ V α + p α V α ;β. (6.29) Since β φ and V α ;β components: are tensors, the term in the parenthesis is a tensor with p α;β = p α,β p µ Γ µ αβ. (6.30) We can extend this argument to show that β T µν T µν;β = T µν,β T αν Γ α µβ Γ µα Γ α νβ, β T µν T µν ;β = T µν ;β + T αν Γ µ αβ + T µα Γ ν αβ, β T µ ν T µ ν;β = T µ ν,β + T α νγ µ αβ T µ αγ α νβ. (6.31) 6.3 Calculating Γ α βγ from the metric Since V α ;β is a tensor we can lower the index α using the metric tensor: V α;β = g αµ V µ ;β. (6.32) But by linearity, we have: V α;β = (g αµ V µ ) ;β = g αµ;β V µ + g αµ V µ ;β. (6.33) So consistency requires g αµ;β V µ = 0. Since V is arbitrary this implies that g αµ;β = 0. (6.34) Thus the covariant derivative of the metric is zero in every frame. We next prove that Γ α βγ = Γ α γβ [ i.e. symmetric in β and γ ]. In a general frame we have for a scalar field φ: φ ;βα = φ,β;α = φ,βα Γ γ βαφ,γ. (6.35)

7 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 71 in a local inertial frame, this is just φ,βα 2 φ, which is symmetric in β and α. x β x α Thus it must also be symmetric in a general frame. Hence Γ γ αβ is symmetric in β and α: Γ γ αβ = Γ γ βα. (6.36) We now use this to express Γ γ αβ in terms of the metric. Since g αβ;µ = 0, we have: g αβ,µ = Γ ν αµg νβ + Γ ν βµg αν. (6.37) By writing different permutations of the indices and using the symmetry of Γ γ αβ, we get g αβ,µ + g αµ,β g βµ,α = 2g αν Γ ν βµ. (6.38) Multiplying by 1 2 gαγ and using g αγ g αν = δ γ ν gives Γ γ βµ = 1 2 gαγ (g αβ,µ + g αµ,β g βµ,α ). (6.39) Note that Γ γ βµ is not a tensor since it is defined in terms of partial derivatives. In a local inertial frame Γ γ βµ = 0 since g αβ,µ = 0. We will see later the significance of this result. 6.4 Tensors in polar coordinates The covariant derivative differs from partial derivatives even in flat spacetime if one uses non - Cartesian coordinates. This corresponds to going to a non - inertial frame. To illustrate this we will focus on two dimensional Euclidian space with Cartesian coordinates (x 1 = x, x 2 = y) and polar coordinates (x 1 = r, x 2 = θ). The coordinates are related by x = r cos θ, y = r sin θ, θ = tan ( ) ( 1 y x, r = x 2 + y 2) 1/2. (6.40) For neighboring points we have and dr = r r dx + dy = cos θdx + sin θdy, (6.41) x y dθ = θ θ dx + x y dy = 1 r sin θdx + 1 cos θdy. (6.42) r

8 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 72 We can represent this by a transformation matrix Λᾱβ: where Λᾱβ = dxᾱ = Λᾱβdx β, (6.43) ( ) cos θ sin θ 1 sin θ 1 cos θ. (6.44) r r Any vector components must transform in the same way. For any scalar field φ, we can define a one - form: We have dφ ( φ r, φ ) θ. (6.45) φ θ = φ x x θ + φ y y θ = r sin θ φ φ + r cos θ x y, (6.46) and φ r = φ x x r + φ y y r = cos θ φ φ + sin θ x y, (6.47) This transformation can be represented by another matrix Λ α β: φ x β = φ Λα β x, (6.48) α where ( cos θ r sin θ Λ α β = sin θ r cos θ ). (6.49) Any one - form components must transform in the same way. The matrices Λᾱβ and Λ α β are different but related: ( ) ( ) ΛᾱγΛ γ cos θ sin θ cos θ r sin θ β = 1 sin θ 1 cos θ = sin θ r cos θ r r ( ). (6.50)

9 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 73 This is just what you would expect since in general ΛᾱγΛ γ β = δᾱ β. The basis vectors and basis one - forms are e r = Λ α re α = Λ x re x + Λ y re y = cos θe x + sin θe y, e θ = Λ α θe α = Λ x θe x + Λ y θe y = r sin θe x + r cos θe y, (6.51) and w r = dr = Λ r α w α = Λ r x w x + Λ r y w y = cos θ w x + sin θ w y, w θ = dθ = Λ θ α w α = Λ θ x w x + Λ θ y w y = 1 r sin θ wx + 1 r cos θ wy. (6.52) Note that the basis vectors change from point to point in polar coordinates and need not have unit length so they do not form an orthonormal basis: e r = 1, e θ = r, w r = 1, w θ = 1 r. (6.53) The inverse metric tensor is: gᾱ β = ( r 2 ) (6.54) so the components of the vector gradient dφ of a scalar field φ are: (dφ) r = g αr φ,α = g rr φ,r + g rθ φ,θ = φ r, (dφ) θ = g αθ φ,α = g rθ φ,r + g θθ φ,θ = 1 r 2 φ θ. (6.55) This is exactly what we would expect from our understanding of normal vector calculus. and We also have: Since e r r = r (cos θe x + sin θe y ) = 0, (6.56) e r θ = 1 r e θ, e θ r = 1 r e θ, e θ θ = re r. (6.57) eᾱ x β = Γ µ ᾱ βe µ, (6.58)

10 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 74 we can work out all the components of the Christoffel symbols: Γ θ rθ = 1 r, Γθ θr = 1 r, Γr θθ = r, (6.59) and all other components are zero. Alternatively, we can work out these components from the metric [ EXERCISE ]: Γᾱ β γ = [ 1 gᾱ δ g 2 β δ, γ + g γ δ, β g β γ, δ]. (6.60) In fact this is the best way of working out the components of Γᾱ β γ, and it is the way we will adopt in General Relativity. Finally we can check that all the components of gᾱ β; γ = 0 as requited. For example g θθ;r = g θθ,r Γ µ θrg θ µ Γ µ θrg µθ = (r 2 ),r 2 r (r2 ) = 0. (6.61) 6.5 Parallel transport and geodesics A vector field V is parallel transported along a curve with tangent U = dx dλ, (6.62) where λ is the parameter along the curve [ usually taken to be the proper time τ if the curve is timelike ] if and only if in an inertial frame. Since in a general frame the condition becomes: dv α dλ = 0 (6.63) dv α dλ = V α x β dx β dλ = U β V α,β, (6.64) U β V α ;β = 0, (6.65) i.e. we just replace the partial derivatives (,) with a covariant derivative (;). This is called the comma goes to semicolon rule, i.e. work things out in a local inertial

11 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 75 V Timelike curve U Figure 6.1: Parallel transport of a vector V along a timelike curve with tangent U. frame and if it is a tensor equation it will be valid in all frames. The curve is a geodesic if it parallel transports its own tangent vector: U β U α ;β = 0. (6.66) This is the closest we can get to defining a straight line in a curved space. In flat space a tangent vector is everywhere tangent only for a straight line. Now U β U α ;β = 0 U β U α,β + Γ α µβu µ U β = 0. (6.67) Since U α = dxα dλ and d = U β dλ x β we can write this as d 2 x α dλ + dx µ dx β 2 Γα µβ dλ dλ = 0. (6.68) This is the geodesic equation. It is a second order differential equation for x α (λ), so one gets a unique solution by specifying an initial position x 0 and velocity U The variational method for geodesics We now apply the variational techniques to compute the geodesics for a given metric. For a curved spacetime, the proper time dτ is defined to be dτ 2 = 1 c 2 ds2 = 1 c 2 g αβdx α dx β. (6.69)

12 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 76 Remember in flat spacetime it was just dτ 2 = 1 c η αβdx α dx β. (6.70) 2 Therefore the proper time between two points A and B along an arbitrary timelike curve is τ AB = = B A B A dτ = B A dτ dλ dλ [ 1 g αβ (x) dxα c dλ dx β ] 1/2 dλ, (6.71) dλ so we can write the Lagrangian as and the action becomes L(x α, ẋ α, λ) = 1 c A = τ AB = [ B A g αβ (x) dxα dλ dx β ] 1/2, (6.72) dλ L(x α, ẋ α, λ)dλ. (6.73) Extremizing the action we get the Euler - Lagrange equations: L x = d ( ) L α dλ ẋ α. (6.74) Now and Since we get and L x = 1 ( dx µ g α µν 2c dλ L ẋ = 1 ( dx µ g α µν 2c dλ ( 1 dx α g αβ c dλ dx ν ) 1/2 g βγ dx β dx γ dλ x α dλ dλ (6.75) dx ν ) 1/2 dx β (2)g αβ dλ dλ. (6.76) dx β ) 1/2 = dτ dλ dλ L x = 1 dλ g βγ dx β dx γ α 2 dτ x α dλ dλ (6.77) (6.78) L ẋ α = dλ dτ g αβ dx β dλ = g αβ dx β dτ, (6.79)

13 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 77 so the Euler - Lagrange equations become: 1 dλ g βγ dx β dx γ 2 dτ x α dλ dλ = d dλ [ g αβ dx β dτ ]. (6.80) Multiplying by dλ dτ we obtain 1 g βγ dx β dx γ 2 x α dτ dτ = d dτ [ dx β ] g αβ dτ. (6.81) Using we get Multiplying by g δα gives dg αβ dτ 1 g βγ dx β dx γ 2 x α dτ dτ = g d 2 x β αβ dτ 2 = g αβ x γ dx γ dτ, (6.82) + g αβ dx γ dx β x γ dτ dτ. (6.83) d 2 x δ dτ 2 = gδα [ gαβ x γ 1 2 ] g βγ dx β dx γ x α dτ dτ. (6.84) Now g αβ dx β dx γ x γ dτ dτ = 1 2 [ gαβ dx β x γ dτ dx γ dτ + g αβ dx γ x γ dτ dx β ] dτ = 1 2 [ gαβ x γ + g αγ x β ] dx β dτ dx γ dτ. (6.85) Using the above result gives us d 2 x δ = 1 dτ 2 2 gδα [g αβ,γ + g αγ,β g βγ,α ] dxβ dx γ dτ dτ so we get the geodesic equation again = Γ δ dx β dx γ βγ dτ dτ, (6.86) d 2 x δ dτ 2 + dx β dx γ Γδ βγ dτ dτ = 0. (6.87) This is the equation of motion for a particle moving on a timelike geodesic in curved spacetime. Note that in a local inertial frame i.e. where Γ δ βγ = 0, the equation reduces to d 2 x δ dτ 2 = 0, (6.88)

14 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 78 which is the equation of motion for a free particle. The geodesic equation preserves its form if we parameterize the curve by any other parameter λ such that for constants a and b. affine. d 2 λ = 0 λ = aτ + b (6.89) dτ 2 A parameter which satisfies this condition is said to be The principle of equivalence again In Special Relativity, in a coordinate system adapted for an inertial frame, namely Minkowski coordinates, the equation for a test particle is: d 2 x α dτ 2 = 0. (6.90) If we use a non - inertial frame of reference, then this is equivalent to using a more general coordinate system [xᾱ = xᾱ(x β )]. In this case, the equation becomes where Γ α βγ d 2 x α dτ 2 + dx β dx γ Γα βγ dτ dτ = 0, (6.91) is the metric connection of g αβ, which is still a flat metric but not the Minkowski metric η αβ. The additional terms involving Γ α βγ which appear, are inertial forces. The principle of equivalence requires that gravitational forces, a well as inertial forces, should be given by an appropriate Γ α βγ. In this case we can no longer take the spacetime to be flat. The simplest generalization is to keep Γ α βγ as the metric connection, but now take it to be the metric connection of a non - flat metric. If we are to interpret the Γ α βγ as force terms, then it follows that we should regard the g αβ as potentials. The field equations of Newtonian gravitation consist of second - order partial differential equations in the potential Φ. In an analogous manner, we would expect that General Relativity also to involve second order partial differential equations in the potentials g αβ. The remaining task which will allow us to build a relativistic theory of gravitation is to construct this set of partial differential equations. We will do this shortly but first we must define a quantity that quantifies spacetime curvature.

15 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR The curvature tensor and geodesic deviation So far we have used the local - flatness theorem to develop as much mathematics on curved manifolds as possible without having to consider curvature explicitly. In this section we will make a precise mathematical definition of curvature and discuss the remaining tools needed to derive the Einstein field equations. It is important to distinguish two different kinds of curvature: intrinsic and extrinsic. Consider for example a cylinder. Since a cylinder is round in one direction, one thinks of it as curved. It is its extrinsic curvature i.e. the curvature it has in relation to the flat three - dimensional space it is part of. On the other hand, a cylinder can be made by rolling a flat piece of paper without tearing or crumpling it, so the intrinsic geometry is that of the original paper i.e. it is flat. This means that the distance between any two points is the same as it was in the original paper. Also parallel lines remain parallel when continued; in fact all of Euclid s axioms hold for the surface of a cylinder. A 2D ant confined to that surface would decide that it was flat; only that the global topology is funny! It is clear therefore that when we talk of the curvature of spacetime, we talk of its intrinsic curvature since the worldlines [ geodesics ] of particles are confined to remain in spacetime. The cylinder, as we have just seen is intrinsically flat; a sphere, on the other hand, has an intrinsically curved surface. To see this, consider the surface of a sphere [ or balloon ] in which two neighboring lines begin at A and B perpendicular to the equator, and hence are parallel. When continued as locally straight lines they follow the arc of great circles, and the two lines meet at the pole P. So parallel lines, when continued, do not remain parallel, so the space is not flat. There is an even more striking illustration of the curvature of the surface of a sphere. Consider, first, a flat space. Let us take a closed path starting at A then going to B and C and then back to A. Let s parallel transport a vector around this loop. The vector finally drawn at A is, of course, parallel to the original one [ see Figure 6.2 ]. A completely different thing happens on the surface of a sphere! This time the vector is rotated through 90 degrees! [ see the balloon example ]. We will

16 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 80 B A Figure 6.2: Parallel transport around a closed loop in flat space. C now use parallel transport around a closed loop in curved space to define curvature in that space The curvature tensor Imagine in our manifold a very small closed loop whose four sides are the coordinate lines x 1 = a, x 1 = a + δa, x 2 = b, x 2 = b + δb. A vector V defined at A is parallel transported to B. From the parallel transport law e V = 0 V α it follows that at B the vector has components V α (B) = V α (A) + V α (B) = V α (A) x 1 = Γα µ1v µ, (6.92) B A x 2 =b V α x 1 dx1 Γ α µ1v µ dx 1, (6.93) where the notation x 2 = b under the integral denotes the path AB. Similar transport from B to C to D gives and V α (C) = V α (B) V α (D) = V α (C) + x 1 =a+δa x 1 =b+δb Γ α µ2v µ dx 2, (6.94) Γ α µ1v µ dx 1. (6.95) The integral in the last equation has a different sign because of the direction of transport from C to D is in the negative x 1 direction.

17 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 81 B x 1 =a A e^ 1 e^ 2 C x 1 =a+ δa x 2 =b D x 2 =b + δb Figure 6.3: Parallel transport around a closed loop ABCD. Similarly, the completion of the loop gives V α (A final ) = V α (D) + x 1 =a Γ α µ2v µ dx 2. (6.96) The net change in V α (A) is a vector δv α, found by adding (6.93) - (6.96). To lowest order we get δv α = V α (A final ) V α (A initial ) = Γ α µ2v µ dx 2 + x 1 =a x 2 =b+δb Γ α µ1v µ dx 1 x 1 =a+δa x 2 =b b+δb δv α = δa b x 1 (Γα µ2v mu ) dx 2 + a+δa a δaδb [ δb x 2 (Γα µ1v µ ) dx 1 x 1 (Γα µ2v µ ) + Γ α µ2v µ dx 2 Γ α µ1v µ dx 1. (6.97) ] x 2 (Γα µ1v µ ). (6.98) This involves derivatives of Γ s and of V α. The derivatives of V α can be eliminated

18 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 82 using for example This gives V µ x 1 = Γµ α1v α. (6.99) δv α = δaδb [Γ α µ1,2 Γ α µ2,1 + Γ α ν2γ ν µ1 Γ α ν1γ ν µ2] V µ. (6.100) To obtain this, one needs to relabel dummy indices in the terms quadratic in Γ. Notice that this just turns out to be a number times V µ summed on µ. Now the indices 1 and 2 appear because the path was chosen to go along those coordinates. It is antisymmetric in 1 and 2 because the change δv α would have the opposite sign if one went around the loop in the opposite direction. If we use general coordinate lines x σ and x λ, we find δv α = δaδb [Γ α µσ,λ Γ α µλ,σ + Γ α νλγ ν µσ Γ α νσγ ν µλ] V µ. (6.101) Defining we can write R α µλσ Γ α µσ,λ Γ α µλ,σ + Γ α νλγ ν µσ Γ α νσγ ν µλ (6.102) δv α = δaδbr α µλσv µ w λ w σ. (6.103) R α βµν are the components of a 1/3 tensor. This tensor is called the Riemann curvature tensor Properties of the Riemann curvature tensor Recall that the Riemann tensor is R α βµν Γ α βν,µ Γ α βµ,ν + Γ α σµγ σ βν Γ α σνγ σ βµ. (6.104) In a local inertial frame we have Γ α µν = 0, so in this frame R α βµν = Γ α βν,µ Γ α βµ,ν. (6.105) Now Γ α βν = 1 2 gαδ (g δβ,ν + g δν,β g βν,δ ) (6.106)

19 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 83 so Γ α βν,µ = 1 2 gαδ (g δβ,νµ + g δν,βµ g βν,δµ ) (6.107) since g αδ,µ = 0 i.e the first derivative of the metric vanishes in a local inertial frame. Hence R α βµν = 1 2 gαδ (g δβ,νµ + g δν,βµ g βν,δµ g δβ,µν g δµ,βν + g βµ,δν ). (6.108) Using the fact that partial derivatives always commute so that g δβ,νµ = g δβ,µν, we get R α βµν = 1 2 gαδ (g δν,βµ g δµ,βν + g βµ,δν g βν,δν ) (6.109) in a local inertial frame. Lowering the index α with the metric we get R αβµν = g αλ R λ βνν = 1 2 δδ α (g δν,βµ g δµ,βν + g βµ,δν g βν,δν ). (6.110) So in a local inertial frame the result is R αβµν = 1 2 (g αν,βµ g αµ,βν + g βµ,αν g βν,αµ ). (6.111) We can use this result to discover what the symmetries of R αβµν are. It is easy to show from the above result that R αβµν = R βαµν = R αβνµ = R µναβ (6.112) and R αβµν + R ανβµ + R αµνβ = 0. (6.113) Thus R αβµν is antisymmetric on the final pair and second pair of indices, and symmetric on exchange of the two pairs. Since these last two equations are valid tensor equations, although they were derived in a local inertial frame, they are valid in all coordinate systems. We can use these two identities to reduce the number of independent components of R αβµν from 256 to just 20.

20 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 84 A flat manifold is one which has a global definition of parallelism: i.e. a vector can be moved around parallel to itself on an arbitrary curve and will return to its starting point unchanged. This clearly means that R α βµν = 0, (6.114) i.e. the manifold is flat [ EXERCISE 6.5: try a cylinder! ]. An important use of the curvature tensor comes when we examine the consequences of taking two covariant derivatives of a vector field V: α β V µ = α (V µ ;β) = (V µ ;β),α + Γ µ σαv σ ;β Γ µ βαv µ ;σ. (6.115) As usual we can simplify things by working in a local inertial frame. So in this frame we get α β V µ = (V µ ;β),α = (V µ,β + Γ µ νβv ν ),α = V µ,βα + Γ µ νβ,αv ν + Γ µ νβv ν,α. (6.116) The second term of this is zero in a local inertial frame, so we obtain α β V µ = V µ,αβ + Γ µ νβ,αv ν. (6.117) Consider the same formula with the α and β interchanged: β α V µ = V µ,βα + Γ µ να,βv ν. (6.118) If we subtract these we get the commutator of the covariant derivative operators α and β : [ α, β ] V µ = α β V µ β α V µ = (Γ µ νβ,α Γ µ να,β) V ν. (6.119) The terms involving the second derivatives of V µ drop out because V µ,αβ = V ν,βα [ partial derivatives commute ].

21 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 85 V/ A/ ξ a V A Figure 6.4: Geodesic deviation Since in a local inertial frame the Riemann tensor takes the form R µ ναβ = Γ µ νβ,α Γ µ να,β, (6.120) we get [ α, β ] V µ = R µ ναβv ν. (6.121) This is closely related to our original derivation of the Riemann tensor from parallel transport around loops, because the parallel transport problem can be thought of as computing, first the change of V in one direction, and then in another, followed by subtracting changes in the reverse order. 6.7 Geodesic deviation We have shown that in a curved space [ for example on the surface of a balloon ] parallel lines when extended do not remain parallel. We will now formulate this mathematically in terms of the Riemann tensor. Consider two geodesics with tangents V and V that begin parallel and near each other at points A and A [ see Figure 6.4 ]. Let the affine parameter on the geodesics be λ. We define a connecting vector ξ which reaches from one geodesic to another, connecting points at equal intervals in λ. To simplify things, let s adopt a local inertial frame at A, in which the coordinate x 0 points along the geodesics. Thus at A we have V α = δ α 0.

22 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 86 The geodesic equation at A is d 2 x α dλ 2 A = 0 (6.122) since all the connection coefficients vanish at A. The connection does not vanish at A, so the equation of the geodesic at A is d 2 x α dλ 2 A + Γα 00(A ) = 0, (6.123) where again at A we have arranged the coordinates so that V α = δ α 0. But, since A and A are separated by the connecting vector ξ we have the right hand side being evaluated at A, so Now x α (A ) x α (A) = ξ α so Γ α 00(A ) = Γ α 00,βξ β, (6.124) d 2 x α dλ 2 A = Γα 00,βξ β. (6.125) d 2 ξ α dλ 2 = d2 x α dλ 2 A d2 x α dλ 2 A = Γ α 00,βξ β. (6.126) This then gives us an expression telling us how the components of ξ change. Consider now the full second covariant derivative V V ξ. Now In a local inertial frame this is V V ξ α = V ( V ξ α ) = d dλ ( ( Vξ α ) + Γ α β0 V ξ β). (6.127) V V ξ α = d dλ ( Vξ α ) = d dλ ( dξ α dλ + Γα β0ξ β ) = d2 ξ α dλ + Γα β0,0ξ β, (6.128)

23 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 87 where everything is again evaluated at A. Using the result for d2 ξ α dλ 2 we get since we have chosen V α = δ α 0. V V ξ α = (Γ α β0,0 Γ α 00,β) ξ β = R α 00βξ β = R α µνβv µ V ν ξ β, (6.129) The final expression is frame invariant, so we have in any basis V V ξ α = R α µνβv µ V ν ξ β. (6.130) So geodesics in flat space maintain their separation; those in curved space don t. This is called the equation of geodesic deviation and it shows mathematically that the tidal forces of a gravitational field can be represented by the curvature of spacetime in which particles follow geodesics. 6.8 The Bianchi identities; Ricci and Einstein tensors In the last section we found that in a local inertial frame the Riemann tensor could be written as R αβµν = 1 2 (g αν,βµ g αµ,βν + g βµ,αν g βν,αµ ). (6.131) Differentiating with respect to x λ we get R αβµν,λ = 1 2 (g αν,βµλ g αµ,βνλ + g βµ,ανλ g βν,αµλ ). (6.132) From this equation, the symmetry g αβ = g βα and the fact that partial derivatives commute, it is easy to show that R αβµν,λ + R αβλµ,ν + R αβνλ,µ = 0. (6.133) This equation is valid in a local inertial frame, therefore in a general frame we get R αβµν;λ + R αβλµ;ν + R αβνλ;µ = 0. (6.134) This is a tensor equation, therefore valid in any coordinate system. It is called the Bianchi identities, and will be very important for our work.

24 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR The Ricci tensor Before looking at the consequences of the Bianchi identities, we need to define the Ricci tensor R αβ : R αβ = R µ αµβ = R βα. (6.135) It is the contraction of R µ ανβ on the first and third indices. Other contractions would in principle also be possible: on the first and second, the first and fourth, etc. But because R αβµν is antisymmetric on α and β and on µ and ν, all these contractions either vanish or reduce to ±R αβ. Therefore the Ricci tensor is essentially the only contraction of the Riemann tensor. Similarly, the Ricci scalar is defined as R = g µν R µν = g µν g αβ R αβµν. (6.136) The Einstein Tensor Let us apply the Ricci contraction to the Bianchi identities g αµ [R αβµν;λ + R αβλµ;ν + R αβνλ;µ ] = 0. (6.137) Since g αβ;µ = 0 and g αβ ;µ = 0, we can take g αµ in and out of covariant derivatives at will: We get: R µ βµν;λ + R µ βλµ;ν + R µ βνλ;µ = 0. (6.138) Using the antisymmetry on the indices µ and λ we get R µ βµν;λ R µ βµλ;ν + R µ βνλ;µ, (6.139) so R βν;λ R βλ;ν + R µ βνλ;µ = 0. (6.140) These equations are called the contracted Bianchi identities. Let us now contract a second time on the indices β and ν: g βν [R βν;λ R βλ;ν + R µ βνλ;µ] = 0. (6.141) This gives R ν ν;λ R ν λ;ν + R µν νλ;µ = 0. (6.142)

25 CHAPTER 6. CURVED SPACETIME AND GR 89 so or R ;λ 2R µ λ;µ = 0, (6.143) 2R µ λ;µ R ;λ = 0. (6.144) Since R ;λ = g µ λr ;µ, we get [ 2R µ λ 1 2 gµ λr ] ;µ = 0. (6.145) Raising the index λ with g λν we get [ R µν 1 2 gµν R ] ;µ = 0. (6.146) Defining we get G µν = R µν 1 2 gµν R (6.147) G µν ;µ = 0. (6.148) The tensor G µν is constructed only from the Riemann tensor and the metric, and it is automatically divergence free as an identity. It is called the Einstein tensor, since its importance for gravity was first understood by Einstein. We will see in the next chapter that Einstein s field equations for General Relativity are where T µν is the stress - energy tensor. The Bianchi Identities then imply which is the conservation of energy and momentum. G µν = 8πG c 4 T µν, (6.149) T αβ ;β = 0, (6.150)
