In short: does every vector space have a "standard" basis in the sense as it is usually defined i.e. the set {(0,1),(1,0)} for(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); R^{2}? And another example is the standard basis for P^{3}which is the set {1,t,t^{2}}. But for more abstract or odd vector spaces such as the space of linear transformations (automorphisms?) what would the standard basis be?
