This page is about tangent space in the context of affine spaces. For other uses, see Definition:Tangent Space.

Definition

Let $\tuple{\mathcal E, +, -}$ be an affine space.

Let $V$ be the vector space that is the codomain of $-$.


Then $V$ is the tangent space of $\mathcal E$.

Notation

It is common to write $V = \vec{\mathcal E}$.
