The point value of each problem is indicated. (10 points ) Give an example of a 3 x 3 matrix A for which A2 75 0 but A3 = 0. {15 points) Let (V, , be a real or complex inner product space and let T e £(V). (a) Define the adjoint operator T*. (b) Let M be an invariant subspace for M. Show that M J- is invariant under T*. (25 points) A real n X 71 matrix A r: (ca-j) is called skew symmetric if an = “‘12:: for all i, j = 1, 2, . . . , 71. Fix such a matrix A, and consider it to be a linear operator acting by multiplication on column vectors in the inner product space R”, Where < may >= $1y1 + 502192 + - ' ' +£11.91;- (a) Let w 6 R” and let G E R. Show that the norm of every vector of the form 3: + cAm satisfies the inequality ||=B + 0A1“ 2 Hit“- (b) Dednce that A has no (real) eigenvalues other than 0. (c) Show that U = (1 + A)(1 — A)‘1 is well—defined, and satisfies the equation U*U = 1. (d) Deduce that U is an isometry: “Um” = for every 3 6 IR“. (10 points) Let T be a linear operator from R2 to R4 such that ranT ={(.’L‘1,332,$3,.’E4) 2:131 = :53,and 1:2 : $4}. Show that T is one-to—one.
