right. the set of all 1-forms is a linear space with dx1, dx2, ..., dxn as the base.
i have a short question about the sum of two 1-forms.
We have defined a 1-form w by a pair of smooth functions p,q and we write:
w:=p dx + q dy.
Later we have use the sum of two 1-forms , without any definition.
How is the definition of this. Is it just:
Sorry, if this question is trivial for you, but i'm beginner in topology.
Thank you for helping.
