Finite Number of Dimensions

  • P. A. M. Dirac


Considering a Euclidean space of n dimensions, we have vectors q with coordinates qr (r = 1, 2,…, n). For the present we shall restrict the q’s to be real, so that the qr are real numbers. The vector q has the squared length qrqr, a summation being understood over r. We also write it as the scalar product (q, q).
