Note 1 to entry: A right-handed base is commonly chosen. If, exceptionally, a left-handed base is used for certain purposes, this shall be clearly stated to avoid the risk of sign errors.

Note 2 to entry: For any *n*-dimensional vector space, the bases can be grouped in two classes according to the sign of the determinant of the base vectors relative to a given base chosen as reference for space orientation.
