Compatibility

Calling Sequence

TripleScalarProduct(u, v, w)

BoxProduct(u, v, w)

Parameters

u, v, w

-

three-dimensional Vectors with algebraic entries

Description

• 

The TripleScalarProduct command computes the triple scalar product of u, v, and w.

• 

The triple scalar product can also be computed with BoxProduct, which is an alias of TripleScalarProduct.

• 

The triple scalar product is given by DotProduct(u, CrossProduct(v, w)).
