CPER: a vector is an abstract reference pointer, that indicates the direction of an evolutionary trend. Within the framework of the theory of CPER, a vector resembles the definition of a mathematical pointer or physical impulse, rather than of a biological carrier.
The word Vector is derived from the Latin term vehere, which means "to carry".
