A Calabi operator for Riemannian locally symmetric spaces

  title={A Calabi operator for Riemannian locally symmetric spaces},
  author={Federico Costanza and Michael Eastwood and Thomas Leistner and Ben Mcmillan},
On a Riemannian manifold of constant curvature, the Calabi operator is a second order linear differential operator that provides local integrability conditions for the range of the Killing operator. We generalise this operator to provide linear second order local integrability conditions on Riemannian locally symmetric spaces, whenever this is possible. Specifically, we show that this generalised operator always works in the irreducible case and we identify precisely those products for which it… 

The linearised Einstein equations as a gauge theory

. We linearise the Einstein vacuum equations with a cosmological constant via the Calabi operator from projective differential geometry.



Calculus on symplectic manifolds

On a symplectic manifold, there is a natural elliptic complex replacing the de Rham complex. It can be coupled to a vector bundle with connection and, when the curvature of this connection is

Di erential invariants and curved Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand sequences

We give a simple construction of the Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand sequences of natural differential operators on a manifold equipped with a parabolic geometry. This method permits us to define the

We consider complex projective space with its Fubini–Study metric and the X-ray transform defined by integration over its geodesics. We identify the kernel of this transform acting on symmetric

In linearized gravity, two linearized metrics are considered gauge-equivalent, , when they differ by the image of the Killing operator, . A universal (or complete) compatibility operator for K is a

Compatibility Complex for Black Hole Spacetimes

The set of local gauge invariant quantities for linearized gravity on the Kerr spacetime presented by two of the authors (Aksteiner and Bäckdahl in Phys Rev Lett 121:051104, 2018) is shown to be

Introduction. The object of this paper is to prove Theorem 2 of §2, which shows, for any connexion, how the curvature form generates the holonomy group. We believe this is an extension of a theorem
