I am trying to derive the radial momentum equation in the equatorial Kerr geometry obtained from the equation $$ (P+\rho)u^\nu u^r_{;\nu}+(g^{r\nu}+u^ru^\nu)P_{,r}=0 \qquad $$. Expressing the first term in the equation as $$ (P+\rho)u^\nu u^r_{;\nu}=(P+\rho)u^r u^r_{;r} $$ I obtained the equation $$ uu'+\dfrac{u^2}{r}+\dfrac{1}{P+\rho}\left(u^2+\dfrac{\Delta}{r^2}\right)P'=0 $$ where primes refer to derivative w.r.t. the coordinate r. But the correct equation should be $$ uu'+\frac{1}{r\Delta}\left(a^2-r-\frac{A\gamma^2K}{r^3}\right)u^2-\frac{A\gamma^2K}{r^6}+\frac{1}{P+\rho}\left(\frac{\Delta}{r^2}+u^2\right)P'=0 \qquad $$ It seems that I am missing some terms in expanding the first term ## (P+\rho)u^\nu u^r_{;\nu} ## where I had summed up ##\nu## to only r since the equation only involves radial derivatives. Can someone please point out what I am missing?
