Definition df-oc 22742
 Description: Define orthogonal complement of a subset (usually a subspace) of Hilbert space. The orthogonal complement is the set of all vectors orthogonal to all vectors in the subset. See ocval 22770 and chocvali 22789 for its value. Textbooks usually denote this unary operation with the symbol as a small superscript, although Mittelstaedt uses the symbol as a prefix operation. Here we define a function (prefix operation) rather than introducing a new syntactical form. This lets us take advantage of the theorems about functions that we already have proved under set theory.
