1 Spaces

Definition 1. Vector space

A vector space over a field F is a set V quipped with operations +, ∗ (addition and
scalar multiplication).
Where (V, +) is an abelian group.

Definition 2. Linear dependence

A finite set {xi } of vectors is linearly dependent if there exists a corresponding set of
scalar {αi } with at least one αj 6= 0, such that
αi xi = 0

If on the other hand X

αi xi = 0

implies αi = 0 for all i, the set is linearly independent.
