El formalismo 3+1 en relatividad general y la descomposición tensorial completa

T. Miramontes, D. Sudarsky


A brief review of 3 + 1 formalism in General Relativity is presented, introducing innovative conventions and notation elements which make it easier to deal with all of the tensorial projections involved in this formalism. Also, useful 3 + 1 expressions for manipulation of indexes (contraction, symmetrization, anti-symmetrization), tensorial producs and the covariant derivative of arbitrary tensors are obtained.
