I'd like an example of calculating the Lie derivative of a one-form with respect to a vector field, for example, the one-form(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

\omega = 3 dx_1 + 4x dx_2

[/tex]

with the vector field

[tex]

X = 7x \frac{\partial }{\partial x_1} + 2 \frac{\partial }{\partial x_2}

[/tex]

Any input would be appreciated.
