Math 304 Solutions 3 1 Section 32 8 Let A be a particular vector in R2 Determine whether the following are subspaces in R2 a 81 B E RZXZlAB BA b 82 B E RZXZlAB a BA c 33 B E RZXZlBA 0 Answer a 81 is a subspace of R2 Proof First we show that 81 is closed under scalar multiplication Let B be an arbitrary matrix in 81 and let on be an arbitrary scalar Then since B E 31 we know that AB BA Consider the matrix dB We would like to show that dB is in 81 so we would like to show that AdB dBA This is clearly true since AB BA and or is a scalar Thus dB E 31 Thus 81 is closed under scalar multiplication Next we show that 81 is closed under addition Let B and C be arbitrary matrices in 31 Then since B E 81 and C E 31 we know that AB BA and AC CA Consider the matrix B C We would like to show that B C is in 31 so we would like to show that AB C B CA We can show this AB C AB AC distributive law BACA ABBAandACCA B CA distributive law Thus B C E 31 Thus 81 is closed under addtion Since 81 is closed under scalar multiplication and addition 81 is a subspace of R2 D 82 is not a subspace of R2 Proving that 82 is not a subspace is slightly more complicated than usual We can7t just create a counterexample because we don7t know what the matrix A is We would like to prove that for any matrix A the set 82 is not a subspace If A I then the set 82 is actually empty and there is no counterexample Instead the set is not a subspace because subspaces are required to be nonempty by de nition Here are 2 proofs Proof First if 82 is empty then 82 is not a subspace the de ni tion of subspace requires the set to be nonempty If 82 is nonempty then there exists some matrices in 82 Let B be a matrix in 82 Then AB a BA Then consider zero times B which is the zero matrix The zero matrix is not in 32 since AO O OA Thus 82 is not closed under scalar multiplication so 82 is not a subspace D Here is a different proof using the same idea Proof The zero matrix is not in 32 since AO O OA Thus 82 is not a vector space as it does not satisfy axiom 3 Since it is not a vector space it cannot be a subspace D 33 is a subspace of R2 Proof First we show that 33 is closed under scalar multiplication Let B be an arbitrary matrix in Sg and let on be an arbitrary scalar Since B E 33 we know that BA 0 Consider the matrix dB We would like to show that dB is in 33 so we would like to show that dBA O This is clearly true since BA O and or is just a scalar Thus dB E 83 Thus 33 is closed under scalarl multiplication Next7 we would like to show that 33 is closed under addition Let B and C be arbitrary matrices in 83 Since B E 33 and C E 337 we know that BA O and CA 0 Consider the matrix B C We would like to show that B C is in 337 so we would like to show that B CA 0 We can show this B CA BA CA distributive law 00 BAOandCAO O Thus7 B C E Sg Thus7 33 is closed under addition Since 33 is closed under scalar multiplication and addition7 it is a subspace of R2 D 12 Let x1L7 X27 7x19 be a spanning set for a vector space V a If we add an additional vector Xk1 to the set7 will we still have a spanning set Explain b If we delete one of the vectors7 say xk from the set7 will we still have a spanning set Explain Answer a Yes7 we will still have a spanning set Since X17 X27 7x19 spans V7 every vector in V can be written as a linear combination X17X27 7X19 If we add xkirL7 every vector in V will still be able to be written as a linear combination for example7 we could use the original linear combinations7 and add 0 X19 b There is not enough information to tell It could still be a spanning set7 or removing that vector could make it no longer a spanning set 13 In R2 let 10 E117lt00gt7 00 E217lt10gt7 ShOW E117E127E217E22 span RZXZ Answer Consider an arbitrary element of R2 ii We can write this element as a linear combination of E117E127E217E22 ab Cd Thus7 the matrices E117E127E217E22 span R2 gt aEll bE12 CE21 dE22 Let A be an n X 72 matrix Prove that the following statements are equivalent a MA 0 b A is nonsingular c For each b E R 7 the system Ax b has a unique solution Answer If you want to show that three statements are equivalent7 you need to show that each statement implies each of the other statements One way to do this is to show that a implies b7 b implies c7 and c implies a Then7 for example7 we also have that b implies a since b implies c and c implies a Another method would be to show that a implies b and b implies a7 and also show that b implies c and c implies There are clearly7 a lot of di erent combinations that would work to show that the three statements are equivalent In this problem there are many di erent ways to show the implications among the di erent statements One way would be to use Theorem 142 and Corollary 143 Here is a di erent method Proof We will prove that a implies b b implies c and c im plies a First we will prove that a implies By the de nition of nullspace statement a is equivalent to the following statement Ax 0 has only the trivial solution Consider the row reduced echelon form of A If the row reduced echelon form has a row of zeros then Ax 0 has in nitely many solutions Thus it cannot have a row of zeros so the matrix A must row reduce to the identity matrix Thus A is nonsingular Next we will show that b implies Suppose that A is a nonsingular matrix Then A has an inverse A l Let b be an arbitrary vector in R and consider the matrix equation Ax b We can multiply both sides of this matrix equation by A l We get x Ailb Thus the only solution to the equation Ax b is x A lb Thus the matrix equation has a unique solution Next we will show that c implies a Suppose that for all b Ax b has a unique solution This means in particular that Ax 0 has a unique solution Since 0 is a solution to Ax 0 we get that the only solution to Ax 0 is 0 Thus the nullspace of A is Thus we see that a implies b b implies c and c implies a so the three statements are equivalent D Review for Exam

E Ax is a linear operator Furthermore if L is a linear operator from R a R then it must be multiplication by a matrix The ith column of the matrix are just Lei where 61 is the ith standard basis vector Matrix Representation Theorem If L V a W and E 11171127quot711n is a basis for V and F 11111027 wn is a basis for W then L can be represented as a matrix A where WWW AME The jth column of A is

U1 uz un Lb1 Lb2 Lbm 1 A 43 Similarity If L V a V is a linear mapping from a vector space V to itself the matrix representation of L will depend on the basis chosen for V If A is the matrix representation of L with respect to the standard basis E 61 62 en and B is the representation with respect to the basis U u1u2 un and if S is the change of basis transformation from U to E then A and B are related by S E lU U and B S lAS U lAU General Result If E 01112 1n and F 11111027 wn are bases for V and W respectively and if A and B are the matrix representations of L with respect to E and F respectively then B S lAS where the change of basis matrix is given by S E lF A and B are similar if there is a matrix S such that B S lAS If this is the case then A and B represent the same linear operator The optimal case is when E is diagonal 51 The Scalar Product in R If we take two vectors x y E R then rTy is a scalar called the scalar product of z and y The length of a vector is given by T

Squares Problems Key Ideas If one is trying to solve Ax b where A is an m gtlt 71 matrix with m gt n overdetermined that is more equations than unknowns then often we cannot nd a solution x such that Ax 7 b 0 In other words b is not in the range of A We resolve this situation by looking for a vector i which is closest in the sense that HAx 7 MP is minimized The vector i satis es the normal

Since the notation in the book is not entirely the same or as useful as what we have done in class7 l7ve summarized the important things below At least for change of basis notationithis does not cover everything we did Change of Basis Notation Suppose B V1Vn is a basis for R We know that any vector V E R can be expressed uniquely in terms of B V clvl 02V2cnvn7 where 017 70 E R are unique ie7 once we choose V7 the 07s are uniquely determined We will write 01 02 V V5 I lenl g to mean that 017 0 are the coordinates of V in terms of the basis 8 Using the standard basis 8 1627H39 7en for R then our usual coordinates are the stame as the coordinates with respect to 8 So 1 1 2 2 a lxll Now if we let U5 be the n gtlt n matrix formed by taking U8 V1 V2 an where the columns of U5 are obtained by taking the column vectors for V1 Vn under the standard basis and lining them up The matrix U5 is called the transition matrics or change of basis matrix Then for any vector V E R we nd formulas7 lVls U8 39 lVl87 and likewise lVlB U 1lvls7 which allow us to change representations of V in terms of the standard basis and in terms of the basis 8 and back again If A 11171127 7un is another basis for R
