Definition df-oc 21661
Description: Define orthogonal complement of a subset (usually a subspace) of Hilbert space. The orthogonal complement is the set of all vectors orthogonal to all vectors in the subset. See ocval 21689 and chocvali 21708 for its value. Textbooks usually denote this unary operation with the symbol  _|_ as a small superscript, although Mittelstaedt uses the symbol as a prefix operation. Here we define a function (prefix operation)  _|_ rather than introducing a new syntactical form. This lets us take advantage of the theorems about functions that we already have proved under set theory. Definition of [Mittelstaedt] p. 9. (Contributed by NM, 7-Aug-2000.) (New usage is discouraged.)
