I'm reading about multlinear algebra and I'm stuck at differential form and outer product. The definitions involve tensor product and quotient set and I really cannot grab the concrete idea of the differential form.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone explain in a somewhat layman term what is differential form? (like: "a 2_tensor is a n*n matrix)

Thank you!
