I need to understand a certain characterization of Frobenius' Theorem, part of which contains the following statement:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\nabla_{[a}\xi_{b]}=\xi_{[a}v_{b]}[/tex] for some dual vector field [tex]v_{b}[/tex] if and only if [tex]\xi_{[a}\nabla_{b}\xi_{c]}=0[/tex], where [tex]\xi^a\xi_a\neq 0[/tex].

Is it obvious, or difficult to prove? I do not see the converse ...
