If x is a vector,and center it on the origin,but what dose the formula (x.1=0) mean?I am puzzled about why there is a point symbol behind vector x,and what does 1 mean?
I really appreciate your help! The image below is the original text

Hello,

Common notation for the scalar product.

hi,can you speak in detail? My english is very poor,and can you give me a example? thank you very much

4. Re: A question about vector

You mean the point symbol means scalar product?but 1 means a vector that each element equals to 1?

Yes, 1 stands for $\begin{pmatrix} 1\\1\\ \vdots \\ 1\end{pmatrix}$

This scalar product will actually give the sum of x's components.
