 vector function  noun
1. (mathematics) Any function whose range is n-dimensional
 vector product  noun
1. (vector) a vector with the size given by the product of two vectors computed as the product of the magnitudes of the vectors and the sine of the angle between their directions, and directed perpendicular to the given two vectors, with positive orientation.
 vector space  noun
1. (maths) A type of set of vectors that satisfies a specific group of constraints.
A vector space is a set of vectors which can be linear combination, linearly combined.vector space over the fieldF
1. (linear algebra) A set V, whose elements are called "vectors", together with a binary operation + forming a module (V,+), and a set F
• of bilinear unary functions f
• :V&rarr;V, each of which corresponds to a "scalar" element f of a field F, such that the composition of elements of F
• corresponds isomorphically to multiplication of elements of F, and such that for any vector v, 1
• (v) = v.
1. Any field $\mathbb{F}$ is a one-dimensional vector space over itself.
2. If $\mathbb{V}$ is a vector space over $\mathbb{F}$ and S is any set, then $\mathbb{V}^S={f, f:S\rightarrow \mathbb{V} \}$ is a vector space over $\mathbb{F}$, and $\mbox{dim} ( \mathbb{V}^S ) = \mbox{card}(S) \, \mbox{dim} (\mathbb{V})$.
3. If $\mathbb{V}$ is a vector space over $\mathbb{F}$ then any closed subset of $\mathbb{V}$ is also a vector space over $\mathbb{F}$.
4. The above three rules suffice to construct all vector spaces.
