We introduce the notion of Ricci-corrected differentiation in parabolic geometry, which is a modification of covariant differentiation with better transformation properties. This enables us to simplify the explicit formulae for standard invariant operators given in [A. Čap, J. Slovák, V. Souček, Invariant operators on manifolds with almost hermitian symmetric structures, III. Standard operators, Differential Geom. Appl. 12 (2000) 51-84], and at the same time extend these formulae from the context of AHS structures (which include conformal and projective structures) to the more general class of all parabolic structures (including CR structures). © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
