As one can see, the definition of quotient space, group, ring, field, vector space are very similar. It is similarly defined as an algebraic structure with a ~ on it. I am really having trouble vistualise what a quotient space and group are. My professor told me that we can work more easily with a quotient space since they are divided into mutual disjoint set. Is there another reason why it is defined in such a way?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thx
