A vector can be expressed by a column matrix or by a row matrix, however is preferably use the column matrix for represent vectors and row matrix for covectors.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, analogously, we can express a vectorvas v_{1}e^{1}+ v_{2}e^{2}or as v^{1}e_{1}+ v^{2}e_{2}. But I think that a vector is represented more correctly with one of those two possibilities, whereas that a covector is better represented with the other. The question is, which representation is the ideal representation for a vector and for a covector?
