On Axiomatics of Linear Dependence III

  • Takeo Nakasawa


In my earlier work1,1 gave a method which can be used for investigations of linear dependence in the projective space. The method is an algebraic symbol calculation, in which certain sequences of elements are called linearly independent and the other sequences of elements are called linearly dependent. Therefore, I called this calculation cycle calculation2, following G. Thomsen.
