  1. I am studying inner product spaces. I have noticed that the inner product along with the norm and the concept of angle are defined without any reference to basis. So, I would think that in an inner product space the inner product and magnitude and direction of a vector are independent of basis.

    However, I have noticed that when you introduce a basis the values of the components of vectors may change and their inner products will change.

    So, is the inner product, norm and angle independent of basis?
