Universal expansion of the powers of a derivation

  • M. Ginocchio


We give the expansion of the powers of the Lie operator Δ = Σλ i i in any dimension, whereλ is either a smooth function or a formal power series over an infinite set of commutatives indeterminates. We describe an algorithm for computer treatment and we give, as an example, a table for the orders 1 to 6.
