Download e-book for iPad: Homological Algebra by Cartan H., Eilenberg S.

Whilst this booklet was once written, equipment of algebraic topology had brought on revolutions on this planet of natural algebra. to explain the advances that were made, Cartan and Eilenberg attempted to unify the fields and to build the framework of an absolutely fledged thought. The invasion of algebra had happened on 3 fronts throughout the development of cohomology theories for teams, Lie algebras, and associative algebras.

For the sphere. 5) Verify that for the scalar field Ψ the following relation takes place: ∆Ψ = div ( grad Ψ) . Hint. Use the fact that grad Ψ = ∇Ψ = ei ∂i Ψ is a covariant vector. Before taking div , which is defined as an operation over the contravariant vector, one has to rise the index: ∇i Ψ = g ij ∇j Ψ. Also, one has to use the metricity condition ∇i gjk = 0. 6) Derive grad ( div A) for an arbitrary vector field A in polar coordinates. 7) Prove the following relation between the contraction of the Christoffel symbol Γkij and the derivative of the metric determinant g = det gµν : Γjij = 1 ∂g √ = ∂i ln g .

23). 22) for the derivation of the div A in polar coordinates. 23) x = ρ cosh χ , y = ρ sinh χ . 24) and hyperbolic coordinates 51 9) Prove the relation 1 √ ik g ij Γkij = − √ ∂i gg g and use it for the derivation of ∆Ψ in polar, elliptic and hyperbolic coordinates. 1 Basic definitions and relations Here we consider some important operations over vector and scalar fields, and relations between them. In this Chapter, all the consideration will be restricted to the special case of Cartesian coordinates, but the results can be easily generalized to any other coordinates by using the tensor transformation rule.

For this end we shall use the following strategy. First of all we choose a name for this new derivative: it will be called covariant. After that the problem is solved through the following definition: Def. 1. The covariant derivative ∇i satisfies the following two conditions: i) Tensor transformation after acting to any tensor; ii) In a Cartesian coordinates {X a } the covariant derivative coincides with the usual partial derivative ∂ . ∇a = ∂a = ∂X a As we shall see in a moment, these two conditions fix the form of the covariant derivative of a tensor in a unique way.
