Giving Birth to Vectorial Coordinate Geometry


Pramode Ranjan Bhattacharjee

This paper deals with certain foundational questions about the adequacy of the long-running Cartesian
coordinate geometry which is based on the abstract concept of “sign convention” for the study of the physical
world. To establish a bridge between theory and practice, the present paper purports to introduce the
“Vectorial coordinate geometry” that makes use of a modern notational system to work as an alternative for
the long-running historical system. The proposed scheme will be equally applicable to the “Pure mathematical
world” as well as to the “Real physical world” and is much clearer leaving no room for confusion <
