I'm looking for functions that would qualify as

**of linear independence.**

*measures*Specifically, given a real-valued vector space V of finite dimension N, consider two subsets of V, A and B,

*of which are linear independent and contain N vectors each. A is also orthogonal and B is definitely not orthogonal. What would qualify as a real-valued measure of linear independence, m, for which m(A) > m(B)? Suggestions?*

**both**Thanks in advance.
