Math 417 homework 2 solutions (Given only for problems that are not straightforward computation; contact the instructor if you still have questions about the others.) Section 2.1 problem 1 A transformation T : R 3 R 3 is linear only if it satisfies T ( ~ 0) = ~ 0. The transformation is not linear. For x 1 = x 2 = x 3 = 0 we get y 2 = 2, not y 0 = 0. However, the transformation can be written T ( ~x ) = 0 2 0 0 1 0 0 2 0 x 1 x 2 x 3 + 0 2 0 . Outside of algebra, adding a constant vector still counts as “linear”. Section 2.1 problem 1 A linear transformation T : R 3 R 3 must satisfy T ( α · ~x ) = α · ~x for all α R . But here 2 T ( 1 0 1 ) = 2 - 1 1 1 = - 2 2 2 which is not the same as T (2 1 0 1 ) = T ( 2 0 2 ) = - 2 4 2 . Note: alternatively one could check that another property of linear transfor- mations, T ( ~x + ~ y ) = T ( ~x ) + T ( ~ y ) , is not satisfied either. 1

Section 2.1 problem 44 The transformation is linear, with matrix 0 - a 3 a 2 a 3 0 - a 1 - a 2 a 1 0 . Section 2.2 problem 2 Counterclockwise rotation around the origin by an angle α is multiplication by the matrix ± cos α - sin α sin α cos α ² For α = 60 we get " 1 2 - 3 2 3 2 1 2 # Section 2.2 problem 10 ± 4 3 ² is a vector on the line. Its length is 4 2 + 3 2 = 25 = 5, so a unit vector on the line is ~u = ± u 1 u 2 ² = ± 4 / 5 3 / 5 ² . The projection matrix is ± u 2 1 u 1 u 2 u 1 u 2 u 2 2 ² = ± 16 / 25 12 / 25 12 / 25 9 / 25 ² = 1 25 ± 16 12 12 9 ² . The reflection matrix is ± 2 u 2 1 - 1 2 u 1 u 2 2 u 1 u 2 2 u 2 2 - 1 ² = ± 7 / 25 24 / 25 24 / 25 - 7 / 25 ² = 1 25 ± 7 24 24 - 7 ² .
