The search for the generating compatibility conditions (CC) of a given operator is a very recent problem met in general relativity in order to study the Killing operator for various standard useful metrics. Accordingly, this paper can be considered as a natural continuation of a previous paper recently published in JMP under the title Minkowski, Schwarschild and Kerr metrics revisited. In particular, we prove that the intrinsic link existing between the lack of formal exactness of an operator… 
Minimum Resolution of the Minkowski, Schwarzschild and Kerr Differential Modules
Our recent arXiv preprints and published papers on the solution of the Riemann-Lanczos and Weyl-Lanczos problems have brought our attention on the importance of revisiting the algebraic structure of
Differential Homological Algebra and General Relativity
In 1916, F.S. Macaulay developed specific localization techniques for dealing with "unmixed polynomial ideals" in commutative algebra, transforming them into what he called "inverse systems" of
Nonlinear Conformal Electromagnetism and Gravitation
In 1909 the brothers E. and F. Cosserat discovered a new nonlinear group theoretical approach to elasticity (EL), with the only experimental need to measure the EL constants. In a modern language,
The Conformal Group Revisited
Since 100 years or so, it has been usually accepted that the " conformal group " could be defined in an arbitrary dimension n as the group of transformations preserving a non degenerate flat metric
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
Differential Correspondences and Control Theory
When a differential field K having n commuting derivations is given together with two finitely generated differential extensions L and M of K, an important problem in differential algebra is to
A Mathematical Comparison of the Schwarzschild and Kerr Metrics
A few physicists have recently constructed the generating compatibility conditions (CC) of the Killing operator for the Minkowski (M) , Schwarzschild (S) and Kerr (K) metrics. They discovered second
When a differential field K having n commuting derivations is given together with two finitely generated differential extensions L and M of K, an important problem in differential algebra is to
Minimum Parametrization of the Cauchy Stress Operator
When D: ξ→η is a linear differential operator, a “direct problem” is to find the generating compatibility conditions (CC) in the form of an operator D1: η→ξ such that Dξ=η implies D1η=0. When D is

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
Gauge invariant perturbations of the Schwarzschild spacetime
Beginning with the pioneering work of Regge and Wheeler (1957 Phys. Rev. 108 1063), there have been many studies of perturbations away from the Schwarzschild spacetime background. In particular
Spin geometry and conservation laws in the Kerr spacetime
In this paper we will review some facts, both classical and recent, concerning the geometry and analysis of the Kerr and related black hole spacetimes. This includes the analysis of test fields on
An Introduction to Homological Algebra
An Introduction to Homological Algebra discusses the origins of algebraic topology. It also presents the study of homological algebra as a two-stage affair. First, one must learn the language of Ext
All Local Gauge Invariants for Perturbations of the Kerr Spacetime.
We present two complex scalar gauge invariants for perturbations of the Kerr spacetime defined covariantly in terms of the Killing vectors and the conformal Killing-Yano tensor of the background
