4 - 1 Orthogonality S. Lall, Stanford 2009.09.28.01 4. Orthogonality Orthogonal sets of vectors Orthogonal matrices range-nullspace orthogonality 4 - 2 Orthogonality S. Lall, Stanford 2009.09.28.01 Norms and Inner Products The norm measures the length of a vector k x k = q x 2 1 + x 2 2 + · · · + x 2 n = x T x It satisFes the Cauchy-Schwartz inequality | x T y | ≤ k x kk y k The angle between two vectors is θ = ( x, y ) = cos 1 x T y k x kk y k In particular, x and y are orthogonal if x T y = 0 . Write this as x y

4 - 3 Orthogonality S. Lall, Stanford 2009.09.28.01 Orthonormal set of vectors Set of vectors { u 1 , . . . , u k } ∈ R n is normalized if k u i k = 1 , i = 1 , . . . , k ( u i are called unit vectors or direction vectors ) orthogonal if u i u j for i 6 = 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
