The next books are a hundred% IDENTICAL:
"Aha! perception through Gardner, Martin". ISBN: 071671017X
"Aha! Aha! perception via Gardner, Martin". ISBN: 0894540017
Don't be fooled via the various ISBN's - the covers are exact and flipping via either books, the pages are identical.
As for the e-book itself, i have never had an opportunity but to learn it - i am nonetheless attempting to straighten out the entire duplicates i've got.

16. In R3 , the vectors i, j, and k are mutually orthogonal; that is, the dot product of any pair of these vectors equals zero. In general, in Rn the standard unit vectors e1 ϭ [1, 0, 0, . . , 0], e2 ϭ [0, 1, 0, . . , 0], . . , en ϭ [0, 0, 0, . . , 1] form a mutually orthogonal set of vectors. The next theorem gives an alternative way of describing parallel vectors in terms of the angle between them. 3 (see Result 4), and the proof of the other case is similar. 9 Let x and y be nonzero vectors in Rn .
Then cx ϭ |c| x . That is, the length of cx is the absolute value of c times the length of x. 1 is left as Exercise 23 at the end of this section. We have noted that in R2 , the vector cx is in the same direction as x when c is positive and in the direction opposite to x when c is negative, but have not yet discussed “direction” in higher-dimensional coordinate systems. We use scalar multiplication to give a precise deﬁnition for vectors having the same or opposite directions. Deﬁnition Two nonzero vectors x and y in Rn are in the same direction if and only if there is a positive real number c such that y ϭ cx.
