Vector space type relation and basic instances.

class (Eq a, Floating a) => VectorSpace v a | v -> a where Source #

Vector space type relation.

A vector space is a set (type) closed under addition and multiplication by
a scalar. The type of the scalar is the *field* of the vector space, and
it is said that `v`

is a vector space over `a`

.

The encoding uses a type class |VectorSpace| `v a`

, where `v`

represents
the type of the vectors and `a`

represents the types of the scalars.

zeroVector, (*^), (^+^), dot

zeroVector :: v Source #

Vector with no magnitude (unit for addition).

(*^) :: a -> v -> v infixr 9 Source #

Multiplication by a scalar.

(^/) :: v -> a -> v infixl 9 Source #

Division by a scalar.

(^+^) :: v -> v -> v infixl 6 Source #

Vector addition

(^-^) :: v -> v -> v infixl 6 Source #

Vector subtraction

negateVector :: v -> v Source #

Vector negation. Addition with a negated vector should be same as subtraction.

dot :: v -> v -> a infix 7 Source #

Dot product (also known as scalar or inner product).

For two vectors, mathematically represented as `a = a1,a2,...,an`

and ```
b
= b1,b2,...,bn
```

, the dot product is ```
a . b = a1*b1 + a2*b2 + ... +
an*bn
```

.

Some properties are derived from this. The dot product of a vector with
itself is the square of its magnitude (`norm`

), and the dot product of
two orthogonal vectors is zero.

Vector's norm (also known as magnitude).

For a vector represented mathematically as `a = a1,a2,...,an`

, the norm
is the square root of `a1^2 + a2^2 + ... + an^2`

.

Return a vector with the same origin and orientation (angle), but such that the norm is one (the unit for multiplication by a scalar).
