So I replaced the sum for an integral in the matrix product, creating a product for real differentiable manifolds with rectangular domain. I asked questions about it and got lots of downvotes. Why is this? Are people purposefully trying to ban me?

    $\begingroup$ No one is trying to ban you (although the software may temporarily ban users who post a number of ill-received posts, something mods have no control over). But Will Sawin is right. To make a better MO post, state a single question (that you don't know how to answer) and do so in a self-contained way: don't force the reader to leave the page to found out what you are talking about. (Some of the document, btw, looks very amateurish; e.g., it looks like you don't know the correct definition of differentiable manifold.) Don't be too discouraged; it may take a while to find the right level for MO. $\endgroup$
