Unformatted text preview: Math 205, Spring 2008 B. Dodson Text - Peterson-Sochacki Office hours: M,W: 10:20-11:20, Tu: 11:30 - 12:30 and by appt. email: bad0@lehigh.edu 2 1. Course Info 2. Homework 1: 1.1: 1-6, 17, 18, 21 Due Friday An m n matrix A is an array with m horizontal rows; n vertical columns i, j th entry a i,j in the i th row, and j th column. row vector or row n-vector, a, is a 1 n matrix, just one row. column vector or column n-vector, b, is a n 1 matrix, just one column. 4 Example 1. Give the rows and columns of A = 2 10 6 5- 1 3 . What are the entries a 1 , 2 , a 2 , 1 , a 3 , 1 , a 1 , 3 ? The matrix sum, A + B, is defined only when A and B have the same shape; and then the i, j th entry of A + B is a i,j + b i,j , the sum of the i, j th entries of A and B. The scalar multiple of the matrix A by the scalar (number!) c is the matrix with the same shape as A, but with i, j th entry of ca i,j . Matrix multiplication: 1. row n-vector by column m-vector, only when n = m, is the number a 1 b 1 + a 2 b 2 + + a n b n , where the a i are the entries of a and the b i are the entries of b. 2. m n matrix A by p-column vector b, only when n = p, is the m-column vector with i th entry ( i th row of A ) b. Problem 2. Multiply A = - 1 2 4 7 5- 4 by c = 5- 1 ....
