(a) (5 points) If V is a finite—dimensional vector space over a field F, and ,6 : {3:1, ,xm} an ordered basis for V, define what is meant by the coordinate vector [x]fi of an element er with respect to 6. Also indicate, if it is not clear from your definition, why this coordinate vector is well-defined. (b) (5 points) Suppose V and W are finite—dimensional vector spaces over a field F, with ordered bases [3 = {1:1, ,xm} and y: {311, ,yn}, and that T: V —> W is a linear map. Define what is meant by [T] g , and give (without proof) a formula for the coordinate vector of the image under T of a vector JCEV in terms of this matrix and the coordinate vector of x. 2. Suppose that S and T are two linear operators on a finite—dimensional vector space V which commute, i.e., satisfy ST = T8. To avoid confusion, for AG F we will write ETJ for N(T—}L|) and ESJ for N(S—Al). (a) (5 points) Show that for every )LE F, the subSpace ET, A Q V is S—invariant. (b) (10 points) Show that if T is diagonalizable, and if for each eigenvalue )L of T, the operator SETJ (the restriction of S to ET, A) is diagonalizable, then there exists an ordered basis B of V such that [S]B and [T]fi are both diagonal. 3. Let V be a finite—dimensional inner product Space. For each xEV, let us define A(x) eV* by A(x)(y) = <y, x> (ye V). (You are not asked to verify that these maps are in fact members of V*.) (a) (12 points) Show that if V is a finite-dimensional real inner product space, the map A: V ——) V* is linear and invertible. (b) (3 points) Say briefly why the above result fails if V is a complex inner product space. 4. Let V be an inner product space, and W1, W2 nonzero subspaces such that V = W1 6 W2 (i.e., every element of V can be written uniquely as the sum of an element of WI and an element of W2), and such that every element of W1 is orthogonal to every element of W2. Let T1, T2: V —> V be the linear maps defined by T1(x1+x2) = x1, T2(x1 +x2) = 11/22/2001 THU 19:21 FAX 6434330 MOFFITT LIBRARY 002 x2 for x1 6W1, x2 EWZ (the projection maps associated with this direct sum decomposition). (a) (10 points) Show that for all p, :36 F, the operator T = pTl + qT2 has for adjoint the operator T’ = p"T1 + éTz. (b) (10 points) Find and prove necessary and sufficient conditions on p, qE F for the operator T defined in part (a) to be orthogonal (i.e., to satisfy <x, y> 2 <T(x), T(y)> for all x, yEV). 5. Let T be a linear operator on a finite-dimensional vector space V, let 2L be an eigenvalue of V, and suppose that the generalized eigenspace KR has a Jordan canonical basis {x1,...,x9}, with dot diagram x1 ' x5 ‘ x8 ' x9 x2 x6 13 x7 x4 (a) (7 points) Write out formulas showing the action of T on Kit in terms of this basis. (If you are unsure, it may help to start by writing out formulas for the action of T — ill.) (b) (7 points) Give the matrix for TK/1 (the restriction of T to KA) in terms of the basis {x1,... ,xg}. (You do not have to write out the 0’s, as long as you make it clear what the other matrix entries are, and where they go.) (c) (8 points) Give the dot diagram of a Jordan canonical basis for the restriction of the operator T to the subspace N((T — 3.02) g Kl, naming the basis elements. (d) (8 points) Give the dot diagram of a Jordan canonical basis for the restriction of T to (T * A|)2(K}L), i.e., the subspace {(T - 1020:) | xEKl }, again labeling the basis elements. 6. (10 points) Let T be a linear operator on a finite—dimensional vector space V, and let W be a T—invariant subspace of V. Show that the minimal polynomial of TW (the restriction of T to W) divides the minimal polynomial of T. ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
