In this thesis, we will consider two models of set theory and look at consequences of these models in linear algebra. The first model satisfies the Axiom of Choice;we will show that this is equivalent to existence of bases for all vector spaces. We will also prove that countability of a vector space is sufficient for proving existence of bases without the Axiom of Choice. The second model will be constructed using the forcing technique. It contains an infinite-dimensional vector space having only finite-dimensional subspaces, which implies that this vector space has no basis.
