MATH 304 Linear Algebra Lecture 17: Euclidean structure in R n . Orthogonality. Orthogonal complement.
Vectors: geometric approach A B A B A vector is represented by a directed segment. Directed segment is drawn as an arrow. Different arrows represent the same vector if they are of the same length and direction.

Vectors: geometric approach A B A B v v −→ AB denotes the vector represented by the arrow with tip at B and tail at A . −→ AA is called the zero vector and denoted 0 .
Vectors: geometric approach A B A B v v If v = −→ AB then −→ BA is called the negative vector of v and denoted v .

Linear structure: vector addition Given vectors a and b , their sum a + b is defined by the rule −→ AB + −→ BC = −→ AC . That is, choose points A , B , C so that −→ AB = a and −→ BC = b . Then a + b = −→ AC . A B C A B C a b a + b a b a + b
The difference of the two vectors is defined as a b = a + ( b ). a b b a

Linear structure: scalar multiplication Let v be a vector and r R . By definition, r v is a vector whose magnitude is | r | times the magnitude of v . The direction of r v coincides with that of v if r > 0. If r < 0 then the directions of r v and v are opposite. v 3 v 2 v
Beyond linearity: length of a vector The length (or the magnitude ) of a vector −→ AB is the length of the representing segment AB . The length of a vector v is denoted | v | or bardbl v bardbl . Properties of vector length: | x | ≥ 0, | x | = 0 only if x = 0 (positivity) | r x | = | r | | x | (homogeneity) | x + y | ≤ | x | + | y | (triangle inequality) x y x + y
