Hi guys. Most of my texts have the standard proof of Frobenius' theorem (both the vector field and differential forms versions) and through multiple indirect equivalences conclude that ##\omega \wedge d\omega = 0## implies (locally) that ##\omega = \alpha d\beta## where ##\omega## is a 1-form and ##\alpha,\beta## are scalar fields. Does anyone know of a proof wherein one(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); directlyshows that ##\omega \wedge d\omega = 0 \Rightarrow \omega = \alpha d\beta## i.e. ##\omega_{[a}\nabla_{b}\omega_{c]} = 0 \Rightarrow \omega_{a} = \alpha \nabla_{a} \beta##?
