Let V be a vector space over the real numbers. Denote by A p (V) the vector space of all alternating multilinear p-forms on V. That is, ωA p (V) is a function which assigns to each p-tuple 〈X 1,…, X p 〉 of vectors in V, a real number ω(X 1,…, X p ) such that
$$\omega ({X_{\sigma 1}},...,{X_{\sigma p}}) = \operatorname{sgn} (\sigma )\omega ({X_1},...,{X_p})$$
for any permutation σ of 1, 2,…, p, and such that ω is linear in each variable.
