A basis b of a vector space v over a field f such as the real numbers r or the complex numbers c is a linearly independent subset of v that spans vthis means that a subset b of v is a basis if it satisfies the two following conditions. For every finite subset b 1 b n of b and every a 1 a n in f if a 1 b 1 a n b n. A linearly independent spanning set for v is called a basis.
