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 .
