Hi, I have a bilinear form defined as g : ℝ(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{n}xℝ^{n}->ℝ by g(v,w) = v^{1}w^{1}+ v^{2}w^{2}+ ... + v^{n-1}w^{n-1}- v^{n}w^{n}

I have to show that g is an inner product, so I checked that isbilinearandsymmetric, but how to show that it'snondegeneratetoo?
