Hi to all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let [tex]A^{ik}[/tex] be an antisymmetric tensor of rank 2; Why is [tex]A^{*ik}=1/2e ^{iklm}A_{lm}[/tex] defined its dual? [tex]e^{iklm}[/tex] is the completely antisymmetric unit tensor.

Furthermore, [tex]e^{iklm}[/tex] is a pseutotensor, what does it mean? Conversely, why the product [tex]e^{iklm} e_{prst}[/tex] is a true tensor?

Thanks in advance... ;)
