### Mathematical background

In mathematics a vector has a magnitude (length) and direction expressed as an ordered list of tuples (x, y, z). It is sketched as a directed line segment (arrow). Unless otherwise given, a vector does not impart information about location (when studying in secondary education, we use the origin (0,0,0) of a set of axis as the initial point of a vector.
