As far as I know orthogonality is a linear algebraic concept, where for a 2D or 3D case if the vectors are perpendicular we say they are orthogonal. Even it is OK for higher dimensions. But when it comes to random variables I cannot figure out orthogonality. I saw that somewhere if the expectation of 2 random variables $X$ and $Y$ is zero ( $E[XY] = 0$ ) then the random variables are orthogonal. How is that possible?
Is orthogonality in linear algebra and probability and statistics same?
