Definition df-lindf 27255
 Description: An independent family is a family of vectors, no nonzero multiple of which can be expressed as a linear combination of other elements of the family. This is almost, but not quite, the same as a function into an independent set. This is a defined concept because it matters in many cases whether independence is taken at a set or family level. For instance, a number is transcedental iff its nonzero powers are linearly independent. Is 1 transcedental? It has only one nonzero power. We can almost define family independence as a family of unequal elements with independent range, as islindf3 27275, but taking that as primitive would lead to unpleasant corner case behavior with the zero ring. This is equivalent to the common definition of having no nontrivial representations of zero (islindf4 27287) and only one representation for each element of the range (islindf5 27288).
