I'm trying to study geometric algebra using Artin's book and am having some difficulty with what degenerate symmetric bilinear forms would be like. Does someone know of an example and brief explanation. Also, the opposite being "nondegenerate nonsymmetric bilinear form" would help me out. If I have one explanation, that will probably help me enough though. I apologize, but sometimes I don't get everything in self study. Thanks!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
