a set in general is just a collection of "objects" with or without any condition imposed on the members of the set. Vector space is also kind of set, but with special condition to be satisfied by the elements that belong to it.

*^ n by n complex matrices ?

cumin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
can you add 2 by n complex matrices and get an n by n complex matrix? can you multiply an n by n complex matrix by a scalar (a real number would be a simple scalar to use here maybe) and get an n by n complex matrix as a result? If the answer is yes to both questions, I think that means that n by n complex matrices make up a vector space. If I am wrong I would like to be corrected.
