IsTrivial - Maple Help

IsTrivial

check if the Killing form of a LAVF object is trivial.

 Calling Sequence IsTrivial( obj)

Parameters

 obj - a KF object that is constructed by the method KillingForm.

Description

 • Let K be the Killing form of a LAVF object L. Then IsTrivial(K) checks if the Killing form of L is trivial (i.e. $K\left(X,Y\right)=0$ for all vector fields X,Y solving L).
 • This method is associated with the local KF object. For more detail, see Overview of the KF object for more detail.

 > $\mathrm{Typesetting}:-\mathrm{Suppress}\left(\left[\mathrm{\xi }\left(x,y\right),\mathrm{\eta }\left(x,y\right)\right]\right):$
 > $V≔\mathrm{VectorField}\left(\mathrm{\xi }\left(x,y\right)\mathrm{D}\left[x\right]+\mathrm{\eta }\left(x,y\right)\mathrm{D}\left[y\right],\mathrm{space}=\left[x,y\right]\right)$

 > $\mathrm{E2}≔\mathrm{LHPDE}\left(\left[\mathrm{diff}\left(\mathrm{\xi }\left(x,y\right),y,y\right)=0,\mathrm{diff}\left(\mathrm{\eta }\left(x,y\right),x\right)=-\mathrm{diff}\left(\mathrm{\xi }\left(x,y\right),y\right),\mathrm{diff}\left(\mathrm{\eta }\left(x,y\right),y\right)=0,\mathrm{diff}\left(\mathrm{\xi }\left(x,y\right),x\right)=0\right],\mathrm{indep}=\left[x,y\right],\mathrm{dep}=\left[\mathrm{\xi },\mathrm{\eta }\right]\right)$
 ${\mathrm{E2}}{≔}\left[{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}{,}{y}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{x}}{=}{-}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{y}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{x}}{=}{0}\right]{,}{\mathrm{indep}}{=}\left[{x}{,}{y}\right]{,}{\mathrm{dep}}{=}\left[{\mathrm{\xi }}{,}{\mathrm{\eta }}\right]$ (2)

We first construct a LAVF object for E(2).

 > $L≔\mathrm{LAVF}\left(V,\mathrm{E2}\right)$
 ${L}{≔}\left[{\mathrm{\xi }}{}\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{x}}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.4em}{0.0ex}}{+}{\mathrm{\eta }}{}\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{y}}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.4em}{0.0ex}}\right]\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.3em}{0.0ex}}{&where}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.3em}{0.0ex}}\left\{\left[{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}{,}{y}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{x}}{=}{0}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{x}}{=}{-}{{\mathrm{\xi }}}_{{y}}{,}{{\mathrm{\eta }}}_{{y}}{=}{0}\right]\right\}$ (3)
 > $\mathrm{IsLieAlgebra}\left(L\right)$
 ${\mathrm{true}}$ (4)

Get its KillingForm as a local KF object.

 > $K≔\mathrm{KillingForm}\left(L\right)$
 ${K}{≔}\left({X}{,}{Y}\right){→}{-}{2}{}\left(\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{y}}{}{X}{}\left({x}\right)\right){}\left(\frac{{\partial }}{{\partial }{y}}{}{Y}{}\left({x}\right)\right)$ (5)
 > $\mathrm{IsTrivial}\left(K\right)$
 ${\mathrm{false}}$ (6)
