    Square root of the Lie derivative

    It is shown that the Lie derivative acting on differential forms can be written as the square of the sum of the exterior derivative and the interior product.

    This is very reminiscent of connections and their curvature.

    I do not claim that this result is really new, but I have not seen it in print anywhere. However, I know that some people do know this result. It is by no means common knowledge.
