  1. Scalar multiplication

    In mathematics, scalar multiplication is one of the basic operations defining a vector space in linear algebra. In an intuitive geometrical context, scalar multiplication of a real Euclidean vector by a positive real number multiplies the magnitude of the vector without changing its direction. The term "scalar" itself derives from this usage: a scalar is that which scales vectors. Scalar multiplication is the multiplication of a vector by a scalar, and must be distinguished from inner product of two vectors.
