Hi. I'm trying to self-study differential geometry and have come across interior products of vectors and differential forms. I will use brackets to show the interior product and I would just like to check I am understanding something correctly. Do I need to manipulate the differential form to get the differential to be differentiated at the front of the form ? ie(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

( ∂/∂x , dx∧dy ) = dy and ( ∂/∂x , dy∧dx ) = -dy

( ∂/∂z , dx∧dy∧dz ) = dx∧dy and ( ∂/∂z , dx∧dz∧dy ) = -dx∧dy

Have I got this right ? Thanks
