# if $v\backslash ne0$ then $\backslash left\backslash ,\; v\backslash right\backslash ,\; \backslash ne0$;
# given a scalar $k$, $\backslash left\backslash ,\; kv\backslash right\backslash ,\; =\backslash left,\; k\backslash right,\; \backslash cdot\backslash left\backslash ,\; v\backslash right\backslash ,$, where $\backslash left,\; k\backslash right,$ is the absolute value of $k$;
# given two vectors $v,w$, $\backslash left\backslash ,\; v+w\backslash right\backslash ,\; \backslash le\backslash left\backslash ,\; v\backslash right\backslash ,\; +\backslash left\backslash ,\; w\backslash right\backslash ,$ (the triangle inequality).
