    Let define two vectors:

    The cross productis:

    (1.1)
    Now if we define then:
    (1.2)
    We know that
    (1.3)
    Then:
    (1.4)
    We note that:
    (1.5)
    So if we ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution shows how Levi-Civita tensor and Einstein summation help simplify the cross product expression.
