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.
