Linear Algebra: More about Vector Spaces

## Linear Algebra - More about Vector Spaces - Outline of Contents:

 Defining and explaining the norm of a vector, inner product, Graham-Schmidt process, co-ordinate vectors, linear transformation and its kernel. Introductory problems related to these.

Here's a quick look at some of the problems we'll solve in this tutorial:

Find the co-ordinate vectors of the vector with components (2,3,4,-1) of V
relative to the standard basis of V4.

Find the co-ordinate vectors of the vector with components (2,3,4,-1) of V
relative to the standard basis of [e1, e2, e3 ,e4]
where e1 = (1,1,0,0,)  e2 = (0,1,1,0) e3 = (0,0,1,1) e4 = (1,0,0,1)
