k-frame

In linear algebra, a branch of mathematics, a k-frame is an ordered set of k linearly independent[citation needed] vectors in a vector space; thus k ≤ n, where n is the dimension of the space, and if k = n an n-frame is precisely an ordered basis.

If the vectors are orthogonal, or orthonormal, the frame is called an orthogonal frame, or orthonormal frame, respectively.
