comment second fundamental form and connection forms
I guess what the author meant by "orthonormal frame" is orthonormal list of vector fields induced from local parametrization.

@JamesS.Cook, sure, that I agree. Thanks with the help.

@JamesS.Cook, "Let's see, if the commutator is nontrivial then I don't think that means it is not possible. I certainly can find vector fields on the plane which have nontrivial Lie Bracket." I meant vector fields with nontrivial commutator can't be coordinate derivations.

comment why does Lie bracket of two coordinate vector fields always vanish?
@JamesS.Cook, so this in a sense tells me if I start out with two vector fields such that the Lie bracket doesn't vanish, then there is no way I could find a coordinate system such that they happen to be coordinate derivations. Now, is the reverse true? That is, if I start out with two vector fields such that the Lie bracket DOES vanish, is it true that I can find a coordinate system with them being coordinate derivations? Thanks!

comment minimize p norm of f+c
Never mind. I've already found a counter example. $e^x$ in $L^4$ doesn't follow this rule.
