Let V be a real vector space. Suppose to each pair of vectors u,v ε v(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); there is assigned a real number, denoted by <u, v>.This functionis called a inner product on V if it satisfies some axioms.

1. What does refers by"this function"? Is it "<u, v>"? If it is then How we can call it's a function?

2. What does"there is assigned a real number"suggest? Could someone please explain it to me with examples?
