Spin coefficient transformation for null rotation with $l$ fixed

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

In Newmann-Penrose formalism, a Null rotation with ##l## fixed is
$$l^a−>l^a\\
n^a−>n^a+\bar{c}m^a+c\bar{m}^a+c\bar{c}l^a\\
m^a−>m^a+cl^a\\
\bar{m}^a−>\bar{m}^a+\bar{c}l^a$$
Using this transformation, how to prove?
$$π−>π+2\bar{c}ϵ+\bar{c}^2κ+D\bar{c}$$

One quick note on LaTeX: LaTeX inline in a paragraph is delimited with two pound signs (2 #), not $. I've fixed the OP of this thread accordingly.
