Representation of the point X with respect to origin O by the vector [\overrightarrow{OX} = {\bf x}]. The vector x is described with respect to the vector basis [\{{\bf a}_{1},{\bf a}_{2}\}] of [{\bf V}^{2}] by the coefficients [x_{1},x_{2}]. The coordinate system [(O,{\bf a}_{1},{\bf a}_{2})] of the point space [E^{2}] consists of the point O of [E^{2}] and the vector basis [\{{\bf a}_{1},{\bf a}_{2}\}] of [{\bf V}^{2}].
