The Leibniz rule for Lie derivatives

Let V and ω be vector and covector ﬁelds and f a real function, all deﬁned in the neighbourhood of a point p. Show that at p LX (f ω ) = (Xf )ω + f LX ω.

3.2

The Lie derivative and contraction

For any vector ﬁeld X show that LX δ a b = 0. Deduce that Lie derivation commutes with contraction, i.e., if Y is a vector ﬁeld and ω a covector ﬁeld, then at any point p, LX ω, Y = LX ω, Y + ω, LX Y .

3.3

The Lie derivative of a covector

In the lectures, deﬁnitions of the Lie derivatives of scalars and vectors were given in direct manifestly chart-free terms. The deﬁnition of the Lie derivative of a covector was obtained using these and the Leibniz property. Write out a direct manifestly chart-free deﬁnition of the Lie derivative of a covector, and demonstrate its consistency with that of the lectures.

Lie derivatives in electrodynamics

Two of the Maxwell equations governing electrodynamics are ∇ · B = 0, ∂B = −∇ ∧ E, ∂t

and within a magnetohydrodynamic ﬂuid of high conductivity E + v ∧ B = 0, where v is the velocity of the ﬂuid. The ﬂuid is incompressible, i.e., ∇ · v = 0. Show that in steady-state situations the 3-vector equation of motion for B can be expressed succinctly as Lv B = 0. For unsteady motions we deﬁne a non-relativistic 4-velocity V = ∂ ∂ + vα α , ∂t ∂x

and a non-relativistic 4-vector magnetic ﬁeld B = (0, B). Show that the 3-vector equation of motion for B can be rewritten as LV B = 0 . [An open-ended extension is to examine your favourite branch of physics looking for other examples of the Lie derivative at work.]
