#### Abstract

An integral representation for the exterior square $L$-function for $GL_n$ was given by Jacquet and Shalika in 1990. Recently there has been renewed interest in both the local and global theory of the exterior square $L$-function via this integral representation. In an earlier work, the second author used his results on the connection between linear periods and Shalika periods to analyze the local exterior square $L$-functions via Bernstein-Zelevinsky derivatives and prove the local functional equation in the case of $GL_{2m}(F)$, for $F$ a nonarchimedean local field. In this paper we complete this work and derive the local functional equation for the exterior square $L$-function for $GL_{2m+1}(F)$ by similar methods, and extending the functional equation in both cases to non-generic representations. With these results, we have the local functional equation of the exterior square $L$-function for irreducible admissible representations of $GL_n(F)$, for any $n$, for use in future applications.
