Is it correct to assume that there is no such thing as non-orthogonal basis? The orthogonal eigenbasis is the "easiest" to work with, but generally to be a basis a set of vectors has to be lin. indep and span the space, and being "lin. indep." means orthogonal.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is it correct?

Thanks.
