In mathematics, the exterior product or wedge product of vectors is an algebraic construction worn in geometry to learn areas, volumes, and their advanced dimensional analogues. The external result of two vectors u and v, denoted by u ∧ v, is called a bivector and lives in a space called the exterior square, a vector space that is distinctive from the inventive gap of vectors. The degree of u ∧ v can be interpret as the area of the lozenge with sides u and v, which in three dimensions can also be compute by means of the cross product of the two vectors. Like the cross product, the exterior product is anticommutative, significance that u ∧ v =− (v ∧ u) for all vectors u and v, but, unlike the cross product, the exterior product is associative. One way to envision a bivector is as a relations of parallelograms all hypocritical in the same even, having the identical area, and with the same direction—a choice of clockwise or contradict clockwise.

When regard in this manner, the exterior product of two vectors is called a 2-blade. More generally, the exterior product of any number k of vectors can be defined and is sometimes called a kblade. It lives in a space known as the kth exterior influence. The extent of the significant k-blade is the volume of the kdimensional parallelotope whose edges are the given vectors, just as the magnitude of the scalar triple product of vectors in three dimensions give the volume of the parallelepiped generate by those vectors.

The exterior algebra, or Grassmann algebra after Hermann Grassmann, is the arithmetical structure whose product is the exterior product. The exterior algebra provide an arithmetical set in which to retort arithmetical questions. For example, blades have a substance numerical analysis, and matter in the exterior algebra can be manipulate according to a set of unequivocal regulations. The exterior algebra contain objects that are not only k-blades, but sums of k-blades; such a calculation is called a k- Vector the k-blades, since they are uncomplicated products of vectors, are called the easy fundamentals of the algebra. The rank of any k-vector is distinct to be the fewest integer of simple fundamentals of which it is a sum. The exterior product extends to the complete exterior algebra, so that it makes sense to multiply any two elements of the algebra. Capable of with this product, the exterior algebra is an associative algebra, which means that α ∧ (β ∧ γ) = (α ∧ β) ∧ γ for any elements α, β, γ. The k-vectors have degree k, meaning that they are sums of products of k vectors. When fundamentals of dissimilar degrees are multiply, the degrees add like multiplication of polynomials. This means that the exterior algebra is a graded algebra.

The characterization of the exterior algebra makes intellect for spaces not just of geometric vectors, but of extra vector like objects such as vector fields or functions. In full overview, the exterior algebra can be definite for modules over a commutative loop, and for additional structure of significance in theoretical algebra. It is one of these more common constructions where the exterior algebra find one of its most imperative application, where it appears as the algebra of degree of variation forms that is primary in area that use degree of difference geometry. The exterior algebra also has many algebraic properties that make it a suitable implement in algebra itself. The alliance of the external algebra to a vector space is a type of functor on vector spaces, which means that it is attuned in a firm way with linear transformation of vector spaces. The exterior algebra is one example of a bialgebra, meaning that its double space also possesses a invention, and this dual product is attuned with the peripheral product. This dual algebra is exactly the algebra of irregular multilinear forms, and the pairing between the exterior algebra and its double is given by the interior product.
