Vectors in two dimensions have already been studied in Volume I, Chapter 4. Geometric concepts in higher dimensions make the use of vectors even more essential. Vectors serve to express many complicated equations concisely in a manner clearly exhibiting those features that do not depend on a particular choice of coordinate systems.
