In linear algebra, a basis is a set of linearly independent vectors that, in a linear combination, can represent every vector in a given vector space or free module, or, more simply put, which define a "coordinate system". In more general terms, a basis is a linearly independent spanning set. Given a basis of a vector space, every element of the vector space can be expressed uniquely as a finite linear combination of basis vectors, whose coefficients are referred to as vector components. Every vector space has a basis, and all bases of a vector space have the same number of elements, called the dimension of the vector space.
