orthogonal vectors

Two vectors, v1 and v2, are orthogonalMathworldPlanetmathPlanetmath if and only if their inner product x,yis 0. In two dimensionsPlanetmathPlanetmath, orthogonal vectorsMathworldPlanetmath are perpendicularMathworldPlanetmathPlanetmath (or in n dimensions in the plane defined by the two vectors.)

A set of vectors is orthogonal when, taken pairwise, any two vectors in the set are orthogonal.
