Here in Germany it is common to write a vector as a
one column matrix.
The vector character itself is setup as e.g.:
I have however seen vectors setup as
one row matrix where the components are separated with commas, and the vector character is setup in
BOLDMATH without any arrow above it.
Any expert who knows the international rules how to layout a vector properly so it is internationally accepted?
Are there any such rules or are they country-depending?
And as I could see that my question was a bit misleading, I shall be more precise. I am setting up a
sty file containing some vector calculations and I am not knowing which conventions for vector notation are present in other countries than Germany ...
The idea is to setup a global command for typesetting a vector to quickly change layout country-depending.
So my question is: What notation of vectors are common in various countries, e.g.
one column matrix,
one row matrix,
one row matrix transposed, etc. and maybe a clever command change them globally and to know if there is a international rule how to typeset vectors.
Any hints appreciated which notation in what country, like
one column matrix
Hope to have been more understandful now :-)
