## solutions for problems on vector analysis and differential forms

**Exercise:**

Assume that 4 vectors in \(\mathbb{R}^3\) satisfy \(A+B+C+D\)=0.

Simplify

$$ A\times B-B\times C+C \times D-D\times A$$

** Solution: ** By the anti-symmetry \(-B\times C = C\times B\)

and \(-D\times A = A\times D\) we can rewrite the expression as

- We define a differential \(k\)-form as

$$\omega(x) = \sum_{I=\{i_1<i_2<\ldots<i_k\}} c_I(x) dx_{i_1}\wedge \cdots\wedge dx_{i_k},$$

an exterior form with coefficients depending on the positions.(We will be using sometimes simplifying notation \(\xi_i = dx_i\) or \(\eta_i=dy_i\).)

- There are two main types of products between vectors in \(\mathbb{R}^3\):

The inner/scalar/dot product

$$ A\cdot B = A_x+B_x + A_yB_y + A_z Bz \in \mathbb{R} $$

is commutative, distributive, and homogenenous.

Given a bilinear form \(Q(\cdot,\cdot)\), or, equivalently, a mapping \(Q:U\to U^*\), one can bake easily *new* bilinear forms from linear operators \(U\to U\): just take \(Q_A(u,v):=Q(u,Av)\).
