Updated README.rst to fix build… (compare)
Hey there, I am working on a research project using einsteinpy. There were a lot of invariants that I needed that were not supported by einsteinpy.symbolic. so so far I've added 4 ricci invariants and 2 Weyl invariants. I will likely be adding all the Zakhary Mcintosh scalars as I go. I've also created a separate BaseRelativityScalar class similar to the Tensor one. Are these within the intended scope of that module? If so I'd like to make a pull request once I've done more testing.
I feel like this would be useful functionality for other metric analysis projects.

juliainstallation, since the solver is written in Julia and the Python interface is a wrapper over it. This has been tackled in the "latest" code (v0.4.dev0 on GitHub), that removes the Julia dependency but trades Julia's speed for Python's convenience. We are planning to develop the Julia code separately and perhaps have a backend switch, once the codebase matures.
Hi! I may have found a found a bug in einsteinpy. Either that or I have a fundamental misunderstanding about how to use it. The Riemann curvature tensor should always be skew symmetric: R_abcd = -R_abdc. However in the following example this is not the case. I am working with a 2D metric with line element ds^2 = -2 du dr - K(u, r) du^2:
from einsteinpy.symbolic import MetricTensor, RiemannCurvatureTensor
syms= sympy.symbols("u r")
u, r = syms
K = sympy.Function("K")(u, r)
metric_array = [[-K, -1], [-1, 0]]
metric = MetricTensor(metric_array, syms)
rie = RiemannCurvatureTensor.from_metric(metric)
rie = rie.change_config("llll")
rie == -rie # Returns False
The last line should return true for any valid Riemann tensor if I understand correctly, but the R_urru component gives zero. Have I made a mistake or is this a bug? Am I accessing the tensor components incorrectly perhaps?
pip install git+https://github.com/einsteinpy/einsteinpy.git.
pip install einsteinpy. This would install einsteinpy-0.3.1 (AKA "stable"). What you want is einsteinpy-0.4.dev0 (AKA "latest"), that you can install via
pip install git+https://github.com/einsteinpy/einsteinpy.git. This pulls the most recent code from our GitHub repo. The documentation for this version can be found at https://docs.einsteinpy.org/en/latest .
pip uninstall einsteinpybefore you install the latest version.
