Lie derivatives and pullbacks

  1. Jun 1, 2009 #1
    Hello all,

    Despite my attempts, I can't understand where does the 1st equality in the formula (5), page 2, come from... If anyone could give me some help, I would appreciate :)

    This is part of a graduate course on the processes of quantification, in quantum theory. The course makes heavy use of symplectic geometry, and the above equality is used in the proof of an important property of compact symplectic manifolds.
