Highlights Reminder The first examination is Friday June 9 Math 304 Linear Algebra From last time gt A set of vectors is linearly independent if none of the vectors is in the span of the others gt A set of vectors is linearly dependent if some nontrivial boastamuedu linear combination of the vectors equals the 0 vector Harold P Boas Today gt the notions of basis and dimension gt changing

vector 1 2 1 2 1 Space X1 2 7 X2 5 7 X3 3 7 X4 7 7 X5 1 gt equivalently a maximal linearly independent set of vectors 2 4 2 4 o gt equivalently a minimal spanning set for the vector space Solution The vectors x1 and x2 are linearly Independent but Example The standard basis for RS consists of the three they do not form a basis for 93 because they do not span Rs 1 0 The vectors x1 x2 and x3 do not form a basis because they Vedors e1 0 1 e2 1 1 and 93 0 are linearly dependent x3 x2 7 x1 Vectors x1 x2 and x4 do 0 0 1 not form a basis because they are linearly dependent One nonstandard basis for

The dimension of the space P3 of polynomials of degree less than 3 equals 3 One basis is 1 x x2 gt The function space C0 1 is infinite dimensional Any finite subset of the functions 1 x x2 x3 is linearly independent Example continued 5 v i 4 a 2 i 5 How are coordinates with respect to the u basis related to coordinates with respect to the v basis Consider another nonstandard basis v1 The matrix 2 2 whose columns are v1 and v2 transforms v coordinates to standard coordinates and the inverse matrix 7 451 transforms from standard coordinates to v coordinates Since 1 7 transforms from u

that w Lv for some v in V Example If L P5 a P5 is differentiation then the range of L is P4 The range is always a subspace of W The range is analogous to the column space of a matrix L is onto or
