Q: What is a vector space?


answer: a set whose elements are vectors that obey a certain set of rules.
1. If ,
2. If , then (c: constant)
3.
4. such that
5. such that
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
eg 0.
eg 1.
cf.

eg 2. V: matrices

eg 3. Laplace equation (→ normal modes)

<basis> a set of linearly independent vectors that spans V. say
forms a basis for V


if and only if ai = 0
and
(any vectors in V)

<inner product>

a mapping that maps two vectors to a scalar. < vi,vj >
1) < au1 + bu2,v > = a < u1,v > + b < u2,v > (a,b are constants)
2)
3) or 0 if and only if
eg 1. dot product



eg 2.


Dot product






Cross product
