Does this operator (in 3D):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]ε_{ijk}∇_k = \begin{pmatrix}

0 & \frac{\partial}{\partial z} & -\frac{\partial}{\partial y}\\

-\frac{\partial}{\partial z} & 0 & \frac{\partial}{\partial x}\\

\frac{\partial}{\partial y} & -\frac{\partial}{\partial x} & 0

\end{pmatrix}[/tex]

have a formal name and a more compact symbolic representation?
