2) cancel, so that *V(cIII)(Z,Z,Z) = ~Z H. 3) 53 The proof of the theorem now follows immediately. We will now obtain a local expression for ~I 1 using moving frames. This will enable us to compare our tensor fields with those constructed by Jensen and Rigoli. ,e n} be a local orthonormal framing of ~*TW such that {el,e 2} is a positively oriented Jensen and Rigoli call this a "first basis of the tangent space to M.
