### Summary

Vectors in Euclidean space \ ({\ mathbb {R} ^ n} \) can be understood as "free vectors" or as "position-bound vectors" at a point of \ ({\ mathbb {R} ^ n} \). In the first case we understand \ ({\ mathbb {R} ^ n} \) simply as a Euclidean vector space. The second approach is based on the idea of \ ({\ mathbb {R} ^ n} \) as a set or a metric space, the elements of which are called the points of space. The position vectors bound to a point form a vector space which, however, changes from point to point. For example, vectors at different points cannot be added. This leads to the concept of tangent space in a point of \ ({\ mathbb {R} ^ n} \).
