# Scalar

(Redirected from Scalars)
The basis element representing the unit scalar is denoted by $$\mathbf 1$$, a boldface number one. The unit scalar $$\mathbf 1$$ is the multiplicative identity of the geometric product.
For a general element $$\mathbf a$$, the notation $$a_{\mathbf 1}$$ means the scalar component of $$\mathbf a$$.
