To prove (iv), we assume that This implies yielding by (iii), contradicting (ii). 41 is based on the following result from linear algebra. 45. Definition. A vector v e R" is called rational iff all the coordinates of v are rational numbers. A subset W of R" is called rational iff all v e W are rational; W c R" is called symmetric iff v e W implies — v e W for all v e R".
