2. (10 points) Consider a discrete dynamical system ~x ( t + 1) = A~x ( t ) where the 2 × 2 matrix A has eigenvalues λ 1 = 1 / 3 and λ 2 = 5 / 4 with corresponding eigenvectors ~v 1 = " 2 3 # and ~v 2 = " 5 1 # (a) If ~x (0) = " 1 1 # then Fnd an explicit formula for ~x ( t ). (b) Describe the behavior of the system as t goes to inFnity.

Unformatted text preview: singular? (Hint: It is helpful to notice that there is one obvious choice of x that would make the columns of A dependent.) 4. (12 points) Consider the vectors ~v 1 = 1 1 1 1 , ~v 2 = 1 1 , ~v 3 = 1-1 (a) Compute the volume of the 3-dimensional parallelogram in R 4 with edges ~v 1 , ~v 2 , ~v 3 . (b) Find the vector in V = span( ~v 1 , ~v 2 , ~v 3 ) that is closest to ~ b = 1 2 3 4 . 5. (12 points) True or False: As usual, justify your answers! (a) If A is a square matrix then A and A T have the same eigenvalues. (b) If det A = 1 then A is an orthogonal matrix. (c) If A is an orthogonal matrix, and a ij is any entry of the matrix A then-1 a ij 1. (d) Suppose that A and B are n n matrices, that det A = 3 and that det B = 6. Then det((2 A ) T B-1 ) = 1....
