Throughout the study of products there is an interplay between “external” and “internal” products. This relation may be illustrated in the case of homology products. If X R and R Y are chain complexes of R-modules the external homology product os the homomorphism of abelian groups
$$p:{H_k}(X){ \otimes _R}{H_m}(Y) \to {H_{k + m}}(X{ \otimes _R}Y),$$
defined on cycles u of X and v of Y by
$$p({\text{cls }}u \otimes {\text{cls }}\upsilon ){\text{ = cls}}(u \otimes \upsilon ).$$
