 Abstract
 Let V be 2ndimensional vector space over a field equipped with a nondegenerate skewHermitian form f of Witt index n epsilon 1, let 0 be the fix field of and let G denote the group of isometries of (V, f). For every k {1, ..., 2n}, there exist natural representations of the groups G U(2n, /0) and H = G SL(V) SU(2n, /0) on the kth exterior power of V. With the aid of linear algebra, we prove some properties of these representations. We also discuss some applications to projective embeddings and hyperplanes of Hermitian dual polar spaces.
