I was wondering about this: The identity operator writes a vector in the basis that is used to express the identity operator:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1 = Ʃlei><eil

But if you are to apply it to a vector in a given basis A should the lei> then be expressed in terms of their own basis or in terms of A?
