Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I must use this schmidt method to form an orthogonal set from the 4 column vectors: (1,1,-1,-1), (1,1,0,0,), (1,2,3,1), (0,1,0,1).

the only examples i can find are for 2 2space vectors, and that has the eqns.:

u1=v1

u2 = v2 - proj(u1) v2

i'm confused about how to expand that to 4 vectors in 4space, and also i think, about how to do projections.

THANKS!
