MATH 110: LINEAR ALGEBRA SPRING 2007/08 PROBLEM SET 1 SOLUTIONS 1. Prove that the following are vector spaces over R : (a) polynomials of degree not more than d , P d = { a 0 + a 1 x + ··· + a d x d | a i R for all i } , (b) m -by- n matrices R m × n = { [ a ij ] m,n i,j =1 | a ij R for all i,j } . The addition and scalar multiplication operations for polynomials and matrices are as defined in the lectures. Solution. Routine. 2. Let V be a vector space over R with addition and scalar multiplication denoted by + and · respectively. Let W = V × V = { ( v 1 , v 2 ) | v 1 , v 2 V } . Prove that W is a vector space over C with addition defined by ( u 1 , u 2 ) ± ( v 1 , v 2 ) = ( u 1 + v 1 , u 2 + v 2 ) for all ( u 1 , u 2 ) , ( v 1 , v 2 ) W and scalar multiplication defined by ( a + bi ) ² ( v 1 , v 2 ) = ( a · v 1 - b · v 2 ,b · v 1 + a · v 2 ) for all a + bi C and ( v 1 , v 2 ) W . Here i = - 1 and a,b R . Solution. Routine. 3. Which of the following are subspaces of R 2 ? Justify your answers. (a) U a = { ( x,y ) R 2 | x 2 + y 2 = 0 , x,y R } , (b) U b = { ( x,y ) R 2 | x 2 - y 2 = 0 , x,y R } , (c) U c = { ( x,y ) R 2 | x 2 - y = 0 , x,y R } , (d) U d = { ( x,y ) R 2 | x - y = 0 , x,y R } , (e) U e = { ( x,y ) R 2 | x - y = 1 , x,y R } .
