# Weyl Tensor calculations using Symbolic module¶

[1]:

import sympy
from sympy import cos, sin, sinh
from einsteinpy.symbolic import MetricTensor, WeylTensor

sympy.init_printing()


## Defining the Anti-de Sitter spacetime Metric¶

[2]:

syms = sympy.symbols("t chi theta phi")
t, ch, th, ph = syms
m = sympy.diag(-1, cos(t) ** 2, cos(t) ** 2 * sinh(ch) ** 2, cos(t) ** 2 * sinh(ch) ** 2 * sin(th) ** 2).tolist()
metric = MetricTensor(m, syms)


## Calculating the Weyl Tensor (with all indices covariant)¶

[3]:

weyl = WeylTensor.from_metric(metric)
weyl.tensor()
