Definition of Euclidean space

1. Noun. A space in which Euclid's axioms and definitions apply; a metric space that is linear and finite-dimensional.

Generic synonyms: Metric Space



Definition of Euclidean space

1. Noun. Ordinary two- or three-dimensional space, characterised by an infinite extent along each dimension and a constant distance between any pair of parallel lines. ¹

2. Noun. (mathematics) Any real vector space on which a real-valued inner product (and, consequently, a metric) is defined. ¹
