Definition
Let X, Y be two vectors in Rn. X and Y are orthogonal iff 0
=
YX.
Let
k
XXX ,,, 21 be a set of vectors in Rn.
k
XXX ,,, 21 is orthogonal iff kixi,,2,1,0
=
and jiXX ji = ,0.
Moreover, if kjXj,,2,1,1== , then {X1, X2,, Xk} is orthonormal.
Example
The standard basis of Rn is a orthonormal set.

Definition
If

For

It is enough to prove 0

31
=
XX because:
321 ,, XXX is an orthogonal set, so X1, X2, X3 are independent.
3dim3=R. So a set of 3 linearly independent vectors is a basis.
