1. Vector spaces
A vector space is an algebraic structure formed by a collection of vectors. For example, the set of (cartesian) vectors in R2 is a vector space, i.e., The 2-dimensional space
R2 = cfw_[a, b]| a, b R (by identifyi

1. Basis and Dimension
Denition 1.1. Let V be a vector space. A basis is a set of linearly independent vectors
that spans V .
(1) Let W = Rv be a subspace of V , where v is a nonzero vector. Then cfw_v i

1. Linear Independence
Note that a spanning set (i.e., the set of all linear combinations of given vectors) forms a
subspace even though there may be dierent expressions for the same vector. For instance, as
R2 = spancfw_e1 ,

Denition 1.1. A subset W of a vector space V is called a subspace of V if W is itself a
vector space under the addition and the scalar multiplication dened in V .
Consider the line L : [x, y, z] = t[1, 3, 4] (i.e.,

1.1. Equations of Planes. As we see in the previous section, a line (in any dimensional
space) is uniquely determined either by two points or by a nonzero vector and a point.
Similarly, a plane in 3-dimensional space is uniq

1. Complex Numbers
A real number is a point on an innitely long number line. More precisely, the set of real
numbers, denoted by R, is dened by completing (i.e., adding limits of sequences of rational
numbers to the eld) the rational nu
