Invariance of the distributional curvature of the cone under smooth diffeomorphisms
An explicit calculation is carried out to show that the distributional curvature of a 2-cone, calculated by Clarke et al (Clarke C J S, Vickers J A and Wilson J P 1996 Class. Quantum Grav. 13 2485-98), using Colombeau's new generalized functions is invariant under nonlinear Coo coordinate transformations.

Abstract

An explicit calculation is carried out to show that the distributional curvature of a 2-cone, calculated by Clarke et al (Clarke C J S, Vickers J A and Wilson J P 1996 Class. Quantum Grav. 13 2485-98), using Colombeau's new generalized functions is invariant under nonlinear Coo coordinate transformations.
