How to define tensors similar to Riemann tensor in xAct xTensor xTras

I'm working on a project where we deal with objects very similar to Riemann tensor. In fact they are Christoffel symbols for higher spins. I'm using xTras for modeling problems in wolfram mathematica. ...

How to combine symmetrized tensor expressions into single expression in xAct

Let's sayI have the following expression in xAct where covariant derivatives are commutative, $\epsilon$ and $h$ are symmetric tensors. As we can see this expression is equivalent to If we ...

Transforming a tensor expression

I have the expression $\qquad\sqrt{\det[\gamma^{\mu \nu} F_{\mu \nu}]}$ Basiclly, I need to expand this expression in some form like : $trF^4 + (trF^2)^2 + \sqrt{\det[F_{\mu \nu}]}$, where $\gamma^{\...

How to define custom operator for working with tensors with multiple indices?

I've symmetric tensor $h(z)$ with rank $s$. Instead of writing symmetric tensor with its components I use the following notation $h^{(s)}(z;a) = \sum_{\mu_i}(\prod_{i=1}^{s}a^{\mu_i})h^{(s)}_{\mu_1\...
