If you take the real part of what I got above, you get which disagrees with your answer due to the 3y^2 instead of y^2.

so you may need to check your calculation

Ok I've had another go. Can you tell me where I go wrong. Think of R^2 as C and let z=x+iy. Then, a(t)=z+t is a generating curve for e=(1,0).

so whose derivative is so that evaluating at t=0 gives which appears even further from the truth!. I think it hinges on what the derivative of is. My reasoning was which differentaing w.r.t t gives . Thanks - May 12th 2013, 09:29 AMPlato13Re: An isometry between riemannian metric spaces
Sorted it now thanks
