Consider the vectors $$\vec{PQ}$$ and $$\vec{RS}$$ as shown in Figure The vectors look to be equal; that is, they seem to have the same length and direction. Indeed, they are. Both vectors move 2 units to the right and 1 unit up from the initial point to reach the terminal point. Introduction to vectors mc-TY-introvector A vector is a quantity that has both a magnitude (or size) and a direction. Both of these properties must be given in order to specify a vector completely. In this unit we describe how to write down vectors, how to add and subtract them, and how to use them in geometry. 'Introduction to Applied Linear Algebra fills a very important role that has been sorely missed so far in the plethora of other textbooks on the topic, which are filled with discussions of nullspaces, rank, complex eigenvalues and other concepts, and Cited by: This broad introduction to vector and tensor analysis is designed for the advanced undergraduate or graduate student in mathematics, physics, and engineering as well as for the practicing engineer or physicist who needs a theoretical understanding of Cited by:
