Note. We shall now recall briefly the way in which inner product appears in quantum theory. In quantum theory the state of a system is represented mathematically by a state vector, denoted by a ket \ip > belonging to a complex inner product vector space £. To this vector space is associated a dual vector space S* which is the space of the mappings of £ into the field of complex numbers. The vectors of the dual vector space £* are denoted by < (f>\ and are called bras. The bras < (f>\ stand in a one-to-one correspondence with the kets \


12) and the wedge product of a 1-form with itself vanishes, wAw = 0. E x a m p l e . Now we show that, given UJ 6 fi*(Af) and r G ft£(M) uAr = {-)krTAuj. 13) In fact, we have for the coordinate basis or any other basis d w d d d (cu T) d = ( T A r = (—)krr A u as asserted in Eq. 13). In particular, the wedge product of odd forms is anticommutative and the wedge product of an odd form for itself vanishes.

23) with u, v G T p M. The tensor product is not commutative. Once we choose a coordinate basis {-£^} as basis vectors, the dual basis is {dx1}. In terms of the basis {dx1} for T*M we can construct [CBDMDB91], for the tensor product space T*M®T*M, a basis set dxk (8) dx1 denned by Eqs. 23) dxk dxl(u, v) = dxk(u)dxl(v) = ukvl. 24) The dimension olT*M ®T*M is n2 and the metric tensor g can be written as a linear combination of n 2 terms (Chapter 5) g = 9fe/dxfc ® dx'.
