This is defined in Isabelle/HOL as "A \<times> B" or "A <*>B" (in

In the current _development_ version of Isabelle (unfortunately not in
Isabelle2009-2) real^'n is a euclidean space. When we add the type class
instantiation for products of euclidean spaces:

instantiation * :: (real_basis, real_basis) real_basis

instantiation * :: (euclidean_space, euclidean_space) euclidean_space

instantiation * :: (ordered_euclidean_space, ordered_euclidean_space) ordered_euclidean_space

(with the appropriate definition for basis etc)

This should be a very convenient way as no isomorphisms need to be
specified to transfer between real^'n * real^'m and real^('n + 'm).
Everything including integration was updated to operate on euclidean

This is already proved in Isabelle, I will push it tomorrow.
