VECTORSPACE

Vector space

A vector space is a mathematical structure formed by a collection of elements called vectors, which may be added together and multiplied by numbers, called scalars in this context. Scalars are often taken to be real numbers, but there are also vector spaces with scalar multiplication by complex numbers, rational numbers, or generally any field. The operations of vector addition and scalar multiplication must satisfy certain requirements, called axioms, listed below. An example of a vector space is that of Euclidean vectors, which may be used to represent physical quantities such as forces: any two forces can be added to yield a ...
