1. orthogonality

Orthogonality is a concept in mathematics, primarily related to geometry and linear algebra, where it refers to the relationship between two elements perpendicular to each other. In a broader sense, it indicates the state of two attributes being independent or unrelated to each other. The exact definition may vary depending on the context. In vector spaces, two vectors are orthogonal if their dot product is zero; in functions, they are orthogonal if their integral over a specific interval is zero. In general, orthogonality is about being right-angled, perpendicular, or independent in reference to a defined system or set of rules.

1. Orthogonality

In mathematics, orthogonality is the relation of two lines at right angles to one another, and the generalization of this relation into n dimensions; and to a variety of mathematical relations thought of as describing non-overlapping, uncorrelated, or independent objects of some kind. The concept of orthogonality has been broadly generalized in mathematics, science, and engineering, especially since the beginning of the 16th century. Much of it has involved the concepts of mathematical functions, calculus, and linear algebra.
