9/8/2015 2 Vector Space A linear vector space X (such as R n or C n ) is a collection of elements called vectors defined over a field that satisfy certain addition and scalar multiplication requirements. Example 1: 3-Dimensional Vectors (R 3 ): x y x+y a x Vector Space Examples Example 2: The set of n-tuples R n (over the field of real numbers). Zero vector, is defined to be a vector with zero elements. Example 3: The set of n-tuples C n (over the field of complex numbers). n n n define n n y x y x , ax ax a y y , x x 1 1 1 1 1 y x x y x
