    Geomteric Interpretation

    Hi, I'm having trouble to understand the geometric interpretation of Q(v). What is v doing to the Parallelepiped?
    Is it affecting the measure of the Parallelepiped?

    Thanks

    Hey kezman.

    Can you explain in detail what Q and v are? (i.e. give a mathematical definition)

    That's gibberish as long as we don't know what vi and ei are. I would guess that "ei" are the unit vectors in the x, y, and z directions, but still don't know what "vi" is. And what "parallelepiped" are you talking about.

    v is any vector in E^3 as mentioned. v=(v1, v2 , v3)

    I attach the explanation of parallelepiped im talking about.
