A Vector-Input Function is a tuple-input function that is a vector-input operation (i.e. a function whose input is a vector).



  • (Wikipedia, 2009) ⇒
    • In mathematics a vector field is a construction in vector calculus which associates a vector to every point in a (locally) Euclidean space.
    • Vector fields are often used in physics to model, for example, the speed and direction of a moving fluid throughout space, or the strength and direction of some force, such as the magnetic or gravitational force, as it changes from point to point.
    • In the rigorous mathematical treatment, (tangent) vector fields are defined on manifolds as sections of a manifold's tangent bundle. They are one kind of tensor field on the manifold.
