Unformatted text preview: THE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY Faculty of Arts and Sciences FINAL EXAM - SPRING SESSION 2005 110.201 - LINEAR ALGEBRA. Examiner: Professor C. Consani Duration: 3 HOURS (9am-12noon), May 12, 2005. No calculators allowed. Total Marks = 100 Student Name : TA Name & Session : 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Total 1. [10 marks] Consider the matrix A = 2 1 0 4 2 1 1 2 4 2 3 2 . 1a. [2 marks] Compute the reduced row-echelon form of A . 1b. [2 marks] Determine the rank of A . 1c. [2 marks] Determine a basis of the column space of A . 1d. [2 marks] Determine a basis of the nullspace of A . 1e. [2 marks] For what value(s) of r R is the following system solvable Ax = 2 3 r ? Sol. [1a.] A = 2 1 0 4 2 1 1 2 4 2 3 2 2 1 0 4 0 0 1- 2 4 2 3 2 2 1 0 4 0 0 1- 2 0 0 3- 6 2 1 0 4 0 0 1- 2 0 0 0 1 1 / 2 0 2 1- 2 rref( A ) = 1 1 / 2 0 2 1- 2 . [1b.] It follows from the description of rref( A ) that rk( A ) = 2. [1c.] A basis of the column space of A is given by the vectors 2 2 4 and 1 3 corre- sponding to the pivot columns in A . [1d.] There are two non-trivial relations among the columns of A . Let denote by v 1 ,...,v 4 the first,...,fourth column of A . We have v 1- 2 v 2 = 0 , 2 v 1- 2 v 3- v 4 = 0 . Hence, a basis of the nullspace of A is given by the vectors 1- 2 and 2- 2- 1 . [1e.] Consider the complete matrix B associated to the system B = 2 1 0 4 | 2 2 1 1 2 | 3 4 2 3 2 | r 2 1 0 4 | 2 0 0 1- 2 | 1 0 0 3- 6 | r- 4 2 1 0 4 | 2 0 0 1- 2 | 1 0 0 0 | r- 7 The system is solvable if and only if r = 7. 2. [15 marks] Consider the matrix A = 1 4 1 1 1 1 . 2a. [5 marks] Give a factorization A = QR , where R is an upper-triangular matrix and Q is a matrix with orthonormal columns. 2b. [5 marks] Find the least square solution to the system Ax = b , for b = 4 8 6 . 2c. [5 marks] The projection matrix P = A ( A T A )- 1 A T projects all vectors onto the column space of A . Find a vector q , not in the column space of A such that Pq = 1 4 4 ....
