Students beware[edit]

I had been monitoring this article for bad edits, but I am leaving the WP and am now abandoning this article to its fate.

Good luck to Mpatel (talk · contribs) and to all students in your search for information, regardless!---CH 17:40, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Possible factual problem[edit]

I'm not an expert, and I haven't checked the references yet. . . , but I suspect the mentioned in the first set-off equation is not to be identified with the defined in the next paragraph. Following through the definition seems to give a distinct result. Algonkian wanna learn (talk) 00:28, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Its not. The article uses the "well-known" convention that is three dimensional, while is four-dimensional. That is, i=1,2,3 and mu=1,2,3,4. I'm not sure where to say this; it is one of those things that "everyone knows". (talk) 17:40, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
Or are you trying to say that the definition of the twist vector is wrong? Its not just "mentioned", the first equation uses and the paragraphs that follow give it a name: the "twist vector" and define as that anti-symmetric derivative-product of the killing vector. Or maybe you are saying that metrics of that form can also include 's that are more general than just twist vectors? Hmm. Maybe. I don't know. (talk) 17:52, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
