Hello everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm studying some applications of AdS/CFT and I came across an expression of the Maxwell field written in the following way:

$$

A=A_t(r)dt+B(r)xdy.

$$

How does this notation work? Is it simply a way of writing the four-vector? If so, why do we use this notation?

Thanks a lot!
