This module gives a brief introduction to Lie derivatives and how they act on various geometric objects. The principal difficulty in taking derivatives of sections of vector bundles is that the there is no cannonical way of comparing values of sections over different points. In general this problem is handled by installing a connection on the manifold, but… (More)
