My question is not really specific to a particular metric as I have several examples in mind. I'm really interested in how many arbitary functions the KillingVectiors command in DifferentialGeometry is likely to be able to handle and some idea of how long it might take Maple to output a response.
I haven't as yet used the physics package so i'll have to acquaint myself with the syntax for setting up the metric.
I see that KillingVectors in the Physics package seems to have more options for the output, which is useful. But I would assume that KillingVectors is likely to have the same resources in both packages as far as actually finding Killing vectors ?
