I am trying to teach myself and often get stuck.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Right now I've come across a . B = 1/2(aB-Ba) where a is a vector and B is a bivector.

what's confusing me is that it seems to require a change in the definition of geometric product as the sum of a symmetrical inner product and antisymmetrical wedge product, which implies that a . b = 1/2(ab + Ba).

What have I misunderstood?

Thanks

Ken
