Linear Inner Product Spaces

In this class we have discussed a number of different linear inner product spaces. One of the properties of a linear inner product space is that you can create a basis that provides a complete set. Explain what a basis is, state the completeness relation for the basis and give two examples of linear inner product spaces. Note: This is an essay question. Your answer will be judged not solely on its correctness, but for its depth, coherence, and clarity.
