Covariant derivative

It is a well-known problem in typical notation of GR, that an object with some indices does not necessarily behave as a tensor. In case you want to look it up for ordinary coordinate derivatives, Christoffel symbols, the Lie derivative and the covariant derivative, have a look at these derivations!
