This isn't a homework question, but I thought it'd still be an appropriate place.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So this is about vector spaces. I know these are sort of abstract spaces but I'd like more explanation on them.

1) [tex] \mathbb{R} [/tex] This is the space of real vectors right, like from real numbers?

2) [tex] \mathbb{P} [/tex] What does this mean that it's a polynomial space? Like the standard basis is {1,t,t^{2},t^{3}...} but how is [tex] \mathbb{P}_n[/tex] different from [tex] \mathbb{R}^n [/tex]

3) [tex] \mathbb{C} [/tex] My instructor basically showed us this one, but didn't explain it cause we don't use it in our linear algebra class.

Edit: Are there any other majors spaces that I didn't list but are important to know?
