Question about Grassmann Integral

  1. Oct 6, 2011 #1
    I can find various derivations of ∫ dθ = 0 which are satisfactory, but none of ∫dθ θ =1.

    Cheng and Li says it's just a normalization convention, of course that assumes that the integral is finite.

    Is this just a matter of definition, or is there a better reason that that?

    And would any of this relate to the exterior calculus, since I believe Grassmann algebra is an example of (or is) exterior albegra.

    Thanks very much !

    Why is ∫dθ θ = 1 for a Grassmann number?
