(Redirected from Projection (linear algebra))

In linear algebra and functional analysis, a **projection** is a linear transformation *P* from a vector space to itself such that *P*^{2} = *P*. Projections map the whole vector space to a subspace and leave the points in that subspace unchanged.^{[1]}
