Vector Notation

In linear algebra, a vector is written in a number of different ways: as a variable with an arrow over top, as column vector, or using the unit vector notation. Typically, a vector appears in text like this:

The varying notations are summarized in the table below:

Type Notation TeX
Column Vector
\left[ \begin{array}{c} a \\ b \\ c \end{array} \right]
Unit Vector
a \hat{\imath}+b \hat{\jmath}+c \hat{k}
