So, I realize the basic theory behind Einstein Summation Convention is that any repeated set of indices implicitly indicates a sum over those indices. However, what if an index is repeated three times?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, my mathematics professor posted this problem:

ε_{ijk}a_{j}a_{j}= ?

As you can see, j is repeated thrice. So how do I approach this?
