Dot product - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dot product - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "In mathematics, the dot product or scalar product is an algebraic operation that takes two equal-length sequences of numbers (usually coordinate vectors) and returns a single number obtained by multiplying corresponding entries and then summing those products. The name "dot product" is derived from the centered dot "  " that is often used to designate this operation; the alternative name "scalar product" emphasizes the scalar (rather than vector) nature of the result."
