Gram-Schmidt Orthogonalization
A set of n vectors each with n values may form a basis for a vector space. However, in general these are not normalized (length is 1) nor are they orthogonal. A procedure to form an orthonormal basis for the vector space is called Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization. This site cotains a tool that computes the orthonormal basis numerically with the full precision of the floating point numbers.
