Chapter 1 Problems 11 H N 00 7 Distribution of this material is restricted It is for the use of students currently enrolled in CAAM 460 Problems Prove that a convergent sequence is a Cauchy sequence Let A be an n gtlt 71 matrix Prove that g ltAxgt is a continuous functional on IR Consider a function f R 6 R a Assume that f is homogeneous Show that f must have the form f ax for some xed real number 1 Hence f is additive and consequently linear b Assume that f is additive and continuous Show that f must have the form f ax for some xed real number a Additive and continuous implies linear Hint Establish the result for the integers then move to the ra tionals and nally move to the reals using continuity Hamel Show that there exists a function f R a R that is additive but not linear Outline of Solution Consider the following theorem CT CT 1 Draft 7 distribution restricted to CAAM 560 students Theorem Every vector space in which the scalar eld is the reals or the rationals has a basis To show that such an f exists consider the vector space in which the vectors are the real numbers and the scalars are the rationals By the theorem above this space must have a basis Choose one element of the basis and de ne f to be equal to one on that element and zero on all the other basis elements Extend the function to all the reals as follows If x a1 gt1 0445 where 151 n are elements of our basis and 041 04 are rationals then fz a1f 1 anf n Show that f is additive on the reals but that f is not of the form fz ax hence it is not homogeneous and therefore not linear on the reals Consider the linear program in standard form minimize cTz subject to Ax b x 2 0 Clearly this is a continuous optimization problem State an equivalent discrete optimization problem Give a reasonably complete argument concerning the equivalence of the problems You do not need to prove all statements rigorously but your argument should explain the neces sary steps Formulate the problem of nding the smallest eigenvalue of a symmetric matrix A as a constrained continuous optimization problem having a quadratic objective function and a single quadratic equality constraint Hint Consider the Rayleigh quotient Consider the linear regression problem of approximating the data z1y1 zmym with a function of the form fz a bx We may solve this problem by asking for values of a and b that give the fz mini

1 Hsz l21l W for 1 p lt co and Hzlloo lrgg lzll a Show that for p 2 the linear regression problem can be formu lated as a quadratic programming problem b Show that for p 1 the linear regression problem is equivalent to a linear programming problem c Show that for p 00 the linear regression problem is equivalent to a linear programming problem Here7 equivaler1t77 means that one can construct a linear programming problem that has the same solution set as the original problem State and classify a The isoperimetric problem from the calculus of variations b The Traveling Salesman problem c An interesting problem of your choice lnclude reference Give a speci c example of a semi in nite programming problem Consider the collection of real valued functions de ned and continuous on the interval 071 We call this space C071 a Demonstrate that this collection of functions can be viewed as a real vector space De ne scalar multiplication and vector addition in a meaningful manner and then argue that vector addition and scalar multiplication are closed ie7 the result is something in the space Demonstrate that this vector space is in nite dimensional You can make this problem hard or easy think about your approach before you spend considerable time on it b Argue that the vector space of the reals with the rationals as the scalar eld has Hamel dimension equal to c7 the cardinality of

independent set You can do this using the fundamental theorem of algebra concern ing the number of roots a polynomial can have Then show that the cardinality of IR is 07 the cardinality of the continuum Show that the dimension of C071 is c Hint For each 1217 construct a continuous function ft on 01 by letting ft1m t for m 17 27 7 letting f0 0 and extending ft to all of 01 by linear interpolation These functions are linearly independent of Problem 13 Hence the dimension of C071 is at least 0 New show that the cardinality by C071 is no greater than c To do this7 rst argue that two continuous functions are the same if and only if they agree on the rationals Hence C07 1 can be mapped one to one into R So the cardinality of C071 is less than or equal to c This shows that the dimension ofC01 is c Prove that if X and Y are normed linear spaces7 then LXY the space of all bounded linear operators from X into Y is also a normed linear space with the norm W1 for L e LXY HLH sup

local extremum at 0 if and only if n is even where n is the order of the rst nonvanishing derivative at 0 The function f has a maximum at 0 if f x0 lt 0 and a minimum if f x0 gt 0 Show that all norms on R are equivalent in the sense that given two norms say 39 lla and H17 there exist positive constants m and M such that lt lt Mllxlla for all z 6 IR Hint The purpose of this problem is to demonstrate that norm equiv alence in nite dimensional spaces is really an optimization theoretic property We will base the proof on Proposition for Euclidean 71 space For an arbitrary norm H consider the functional Ms on the set S x 1 Here H2 is the Euclidean norm Show that b is continuous in the 2 norm and that S is closed and bounded in the 2 norm and therefore by Proposition b must have a
