**Real projective space**— In mathematics, real projective space, or RP n is the projective space of lines in R n +1. It is a compact, smooth manifold of dimension n , and a special case of a Grassmannian.ConstructionAs with all projective spaces, RP n is formed by taking… … Wikipedia**Vector space**— This article is about linear (vector) spaces. For the structure in incidence geometry, see Linear space (geometry). Vector addition and scalar multiplication: a vector v (blue) is added to another vector w (red, upper illustration). Below, w is… … Wikipedia**vector space**— Math. an additive group in which addition is commutative and with which is associated a field of scalars, as the field of real numbers, such that the product of a scalar and an element of the group or a vector is defined, the product of two… … Universalium**Normed vector space**— In mathematics, with 2 or 3 dimensional vectors with real valued entries, the idea of the length of a vector is intuitive and can easily be extended to any real vector space Rn. The following properties of vector length are crucial. 1. The zero… … Wikipedia**Orientation (vector space)**— See also: orientation (geometry) The left handed orientation is shown on the left, and the right handed on the right. In mathematics, orientation is a notion that in two dimensions allows one to say when a cycle goes around clockwise or… … Wikipedia**Ordered vector space**— A point x in R2 and the set of all y such that x≤y (in red). The order here is x≤y if and only if x1 ≤ y1 and x2 ≤ y2. In mathematics an ordered vector space or partially ordered vector space is a vector space equi … Wikipedia**Dimension (vector space)**— In mathematics, the dimension of a vector space V is the cardinality (i.e. the number of vectors) of a basis of V. It is sometimes called Hamel dimension or algebraic dimension to distinguish it from other types of dimension. This description… … Wikipedia**Symplectic vector space**— In mathematics, a symplectic vector space is a vector space V equipped with a nondegenerate, skew symmetric, bilinear form omega; called the symplectic form. Explicitly, a symplectic form is a bilinear form omega; : V times; V rarr; R which is *… … Wikipedia**Topological vector space**— In mathematics, a topological vector space is one of the basic structures investigated in functional analysis. As the name suggests the space blends a topological structure (a uniform structure to be precise) with the algebraic concept of a… … Wikipedia**Prehomogeneous vector space**— In mathematics, a prehomogeneous vector space (PVS) is a finite dimensional vector space V together with a subgroup G of GL( V ) such that G has an open dense orbit in V . Prehomogeneous vector spaces were introduced by Mikio Sato in 1970 and… … Wikipedia
