In my lecture note about tensor it states:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As element of integration over the hypersurface it is more convenient to use the 4-vector dS^i , dual to the tensor dS^ikl:

dS^i = -1/6 e^iklmdS_klm ,dS_klm = e_iklmdS^i

What is the meaning of dual?

How the -1/6 comes from?
