Scalar multiplication

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z overview

The vector $ s\vec{a}$ corresponds to an '$ s$ -fold' translation, that is

$\displaystyle s\left(\begin{array}{c}a_1\\ a_2\\ a_3\end{array}\right) =
\left(\begin{array}{c}sa_1\\ sa_2\\ sa_3\end{array}\right)\,

Particularly, we have $ 0\vec{a}=\vec{0}$ .
