Is the Koszul operator supported in Sage?

I would like to use the Koszul operator on differential forms:

$ \kappa( x^\alpha dx_\sigma) = \sum_{i=1}^k \left((-1)^{i+1}x^\alpha x_{\sigma(i)}\right)dx_{\sigma(1)}\wedge\cdots\wedge\widehat{dx_{\sigma(i)}}\wedge\cdots\wedge dx_{\sigma(k)}$


$x^{\alpha}dx_{\sigma}:=\left(x_1^{\alpha_1}x_2^{\alpha_2}\dots x_n^{\alpha_n}\right)dx_{\sigma(1)}\wedge\dots\wedge dx_{\sigma(k)}$

and the notation $\widehat{dx_{\sigma(i)}}$ indicates that the term is omitted from the wedge product.

Is there existing code for this map in Sage?

I'm afraid not. The currently available operations on differential forms are listed here.

Would you like to implement the Koszul operator? If yes, visit this page.

Note that a somehow related operator, the Schouten-Nijenhuis bracket, is currently being implemented, see this discussion.
