Einstein summation notation

    I have been looking through some notes on fermion wavefunction operators and noticed some summations involving indexes repeated 3 times.I know this is not allowed when using the Einstein summation convention. So my question is : is the Einstein convention not used in Quantum mechanics ? and do situations ever arise in relativity when an index appears 3 times and what then happens to the convention ?

    Can you give any specific examples?
