(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given U^{[tex]\alpha[/tex]}= (1+t^{2}, t^{2}, t√2, 0), calculate

[itex]\partial_{\beta}D^{\alpha}[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

[itex]

\partial_{\beta}D^{\alpha}[/itex] = [tex]

\frac{\partial D^{\alpha}}{\partial x^{\beta}}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't really know where to start, the indices drive me insane. All I need is the method, not the answer.
