Hey, I'm going through Hawking and Ellis and want to confirm I have understood some notation correctly.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Are the following correct?

[tex]V_{(c;d)}=\nabla_c V^d + \nabla_d V^c[/tex]

and

[tex]V_{[c;d]}=\nabla_c V^d - \nabla_d V^c[/tex]

Also, do these have specific names?

Thanks in advance!!

Richard
