Question: Defining tensors as arrays VS as expressions in Physics Package


     I was just curious about the difference between defining tensors as arrays/matricies/TensorArrays vs defining them as algebraic symbols. I found that defining them as an expression lead to the wrong answer, and I was forced to define a tensor (LKh) as an array. I've attached a worksheet demonstrating my problem.

I apologize for the amount of tensors needed to find this problem, but it is the only one I have reproduced the issue. I basically define the metric
Metric = g_
auxillary tensor = h
Killing vector = K
LieDerivative of h, wrt K = LKh (not a tensor array)
LieDerivative of h, wrt K = LKh2 (tensor array)
Then I compare two expressions, rho1 and rho2 computed from LKh and LKh2 and they disagree.
