A quick question about Bachman's http://pzacad.pitzer.edu/~dbachman/forms.pdf [Broken]. I've read:

1. $$T_{p}\mathbb{R}^n$$ to mean "the tangent space of some path/surface in $$\mathbb{R}^n$$" and,

2. $$T_{p}\mathbb{R}^n \times \mathbb{R}^m$$ to mean "some (n-1)*m dimensional space of real numbers."

I haven't run into any problems using this definition but I think it would make the text easier to read if I actually understood what was going on (especially in the second example.
