A Find vectors in Orthogonal basis set spanning R4

  1. Mar 2, 2017 #1
    An orthogonal basis set spanning R4 has four vectors, v1, v2, v3 and v4.
    If v1 and v2 are
    [ −1 2 3 0 ] and [−1 1 −1 0 ]
    find v3 and v4.

    Please explain this in a very simple way.

    You have to find ##v_3, v_4## such that those 2 vectors are orthogonal to ##v_1, v_2## (hint: Gramm-Schmidt)

    You should do that yourself. Nobody is going to make your homework.
