Linear Combination and Span Section 44 0 De nitions from 44 1 Let 1117 1127 7 1 be vectors in a vector space V7 then any vector in the form 11111 12112 any where 117 127 7 an are scalars is called a linear combination of1117 1127 7 1 2 The vectors 1117 1127 7 1 in a vector space V7 are said to span V7 if every vector in V can be written as a linear combination of them That is7 for every 1 6 V7 there are scalars7 117 127 7 a such that va111a2112an11n 3 Let 1117 1127 7 11k be vectors in a vector space V7 the span of117 1127 7 11k is the set of all linear combinations of1117 1127 7 11k That is7 span117 1127 7 11k 1 1 11111 12112 unik where 117 127 7 an are arbitrary scalars 0 Theorem from 44 1 For any collection 1117 1127 7 wk of vectors in a vector space V7 the span of117 1127 7 11k is a subspace of V That is7 span 017 1127 7 11k is a subspace of V Linear Independence Section 45 0 De nitions from 45 1 Let 1117 1127 7 1 be vectors in a vector space V The vectors are said to be linearly dependent if there exists n scalars 017 027 7 077 not all zero such that 01111 0202 cnvn 0 If the vectors are not linearly dependent they are said to be linearly independent Another form of the above de nition Let 1117 1127 7 1 be vectors in a vector space V These vectors are said to be linearly independent if D 01111 02112 077177 0 1 implies that that 017 027 7 077 are all zero If equation 1 holds and one or more of the scalars is not zero7 then these vectors are said to be linearly dependent o Theorems from 45 H Let A be an n x 71 matrix with columns 1117 1127 7 1 The columns of A for a linearly independent set if and only if the only solution to Ax 0 is z 0 Let A be an n x 71 matrix Then detA 31 0 if and only if the columns and rows of A are linearly independent 3 Basis and Dimension Section 46 0 De nition from 46 1 D A nite set of vectors 017 1127 7 077 is a basis for a vector space V if a 017 1127 7 077 is linearly independent 117 127 The dimension of a vector space V is the number of vectors in every basis for V The dimension of a vector space is denoted dim V 7 en spans V If every basis has in nitely many vectors7 then V is said to be in nite dimensional7 and if the only vector in its basis is the zero vector then dim V 0 o Theorems from 46 1 D 00 117 127 lf117 1127 7 077 is a basis for a vector space V7 then any vector in V can be represented as a unique linear combination of the vectors in the basis 7 U77 and U17 u27 7 um are bases for V then m n This says that the number of terms in all bases for a vector space is the same If H is a subspace of a vector space V7 then dim H S dim V MATH 220 Similar Matrices and Diagonalization 0 De nition of Similar Matrices Two 71 by n matrices A and B are said to be similar if there exists an invertible n by 71 matrix C such that 304AO D The function de ned by equation 1 that takes the matrix A and returns the matrix B is called a similarity transformation Theorem 1 from 63 If A and B are similar 71 by n matrices then A and B have the same characteristic polynomial and therefore have the same eigenvalues 0 De nition of Diagonalizable An 71 by 71 matrix is diagonalizable if there is a diagonal matrix D such that A is similar to D 0 Theorem 2 from 63 An 71 by 71 matrix A is diagonalizable if and only if it has n linearly independent eigenvectors In that case the diagonal matrix D similar to A is A1 0 0 0 0 A2 0 0 D 7 0 0 A3 0 0 0 0 An where A1 A2 A are the eigenvalues of A Furthermore if C is a matrix whose columns are linearly independent eigenvectors of A then D04AO 4 2 0 Example For A lt 3 3 gt nd 0 which diagonalizes A by equation Verify that D C lAC 71 ab 71 d w note lt C d 77ad7b0ltic a If the n by 71 matrix A has n distinct eigenvalues then A is diagonalizable 0 Corollary from 63 0 Purpose of 64 Q What kind of matrices can be diagonalized A For starters real symmetric n by n matrices have n linearly independent eigenvectors and so they can be diagonalized
