Vec´tor
 n. 1 Same as Radius vector. 2 (Math.) A directed quantity, as a straight line, a force, or a velocity. Vectors are said to be equal when their directions are the same and their magnitudes equal. Cf. Scalar.
 Noun 1 vector - a variable quantity that can be resolved into components 2 vector - a straight line segment whose length is magnitude and whose orientation in space is direction 3 vector - any agent (person or animal or microorganism) that carries and transmits a disease; "mosquitos are vectors of malaria and yellow fever"; "fleas are vectors of the plague"; "aphids are transmitters of plant diseases"; "when medical scientists talk about vectors they are usually talking about insects"Synonyms: transmitter
 1 (mathematics) vector - A member of a vector space. 2 (graphics) vector - A line or movement defined by its end points, or by the current position and one other point. See vector graphics. 3 (operating system) vector - A memory location containing the address of some code, often some kind of exception handler or other operating system service. By changing the vector to point to a different piece of code it is possible to modify the behaviour of the operating system.Compare hook. 4 (programming) vector - A one-dimensional array.
