Outer differentiation ?

  1. "outer" differentiation ?

    Can someone give me a clear explaination of what is meant by "outer" differentiation.

    As for example, when we differentiate the vector potential, dA/dx, in order to arrive at the magnetic field, B, why would this be called an 'outer' differentiation??
