There are a few definitions of a vector. For this overview, I will use the definition that a vector is that which has the algebra of a vector space. The operations for vectors are straight-forward:

  1. Vector Addition

v+w=[v1v2]+[w1w2]=[v1+w1v2+w2] v + w = \begin{bmatrix} v_{1}\\ v_{2} \end{bmatrix} + \begin{bmatrix} w_{1}\\ w_{2} \end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} v_{1} + w_{1}\\ v_{2} + w_{2} \end{bmatrix}
  1. Scalar Multiplication

2v=[2v12v2] 2v = \left[ \begin{array}{c} 2v_{1} \\ 2v_{2} \\ \end{array} \right]
