Orthogonality v = e 1 + e 2 v = - u 1 + 2 u 2 Fact Computations in orthogonal coordinate systems are preferred.
Orthogonality Orthogonality is the formalization of the geometrical property of perpendicularity . The mathematical formalization is possible because of inner products . Bases with orthogonal elements play an essential role in linear algebra. Computations are simpler and less prone to numerical errors when done in an orthogonal coordinate system.

Orthogonal bases Let V be a real linear space with an inner product < · , · > . Recall that k u k = < u , u > is a norm. Definition A basis u 1 , ··· , u n of V is orthogonal if < u i , u j > = 0 for all i 6 = j . Definition A basis u 1 , ··· , u n of V is orthonormal if it is orthogonal and k u i k = 1 for all i .

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
