Vectors with Rational EntriesThe data type rational_vector represents a vector of Rational Numbers. This data type is meant for use in computational geometry. It realizes free vectors as opposed to position vectors (type rat_point). The main difference between position vectors and free vectors is their behavior under affine transformations, e.g., free vectors are invariant under translations. Strengths
