Or something like that... I need definition,, explanation and examples. I have an exam in Rings and Fields on Sunday, and he used that term during the course- I have no idea what it is.
I'd appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance!

Depending on the relative proximities, the first thing I would do is look for that term in my book's index, or to google the term.

Mathworld has a page for it... I bet Wikipedia does too, but I didn't see it on the first page of the search.

I was WONDERING who sent me that over email!!! That's a wonderful little primer/refresher on linear algebra, Mathwonk! I recommend it as well - definitions, theorems, corollaries to boot without all the extra idle chit chat one normally encounters. :cool:

Thank You!!!

I think you must be very strong to read it, but then it is rather succinct.
