I was wondering about the proper way to say, [itex]\langle[/itex]A[itex]|[/itex]B[itex]\rangle[/itex] .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have recently heard, "The inner product of A with B." But I'm not sure if this is correct. Does anyone know the proper order in which to place A and B in the sentence?

As a simple example: Suppose you're speaking with someone on the phone. Then one way to convey the expression, [itex]\frac{x^{2} + 2d}{5}[/itex] , is "x squared plus two d all over five."

How would you do the same with [itex]\langle[/itex]A[itex]|[/itex]B[itex]\rangle[/itex] ?

If someone could also point me in the direction of some literature where this is exemplified, that would very kind.

I must have missed this some where along the line, and I can't seem to find a solid answer anywhere.
