4 - 2 Orthogonality S. Lall, Stanford 2009.09.28.01 Norms and Inner Products The norm measures the length of a vector bardbl x bardbl = radicalBig x 2 1 + x 2 2 + · · · + x 2 n = x T x It satisfies the Cauchy-Schwartz inequality | x T y | ≤ bardbl x bardblbardbl y bardbl The angle between two vectors is θ = ( x,y ) = cos 1 x T y bardbl x bardblbardbl y bardbl In particular, x and y are orthogonal if x T y = 0 . Write this as x y

Lall, Stanford 2009.09.28.01 Orthonormal set of vectors Set of vectors { u 1 ,...,u k } ∈ R n is normalized if bardbl u i bardbl = 1 , i = 1 ,...,k ( u i are called unit vectors or direction vectors ) orthogonal if u i u j for i negationslash = j orthonormal if both slang: we say ‘ u 1 ,...,u k are orthonormal vectors’ but orthonormality (like independence) is a property of a set of vectors, not vectors individually

### 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.
