CS205 Homework #6 Problem 1 1. Let A be a symmetric and positive definite n × n matrix. If x , y R n prove that the operation x , y A = x T Ay = x · Ay is an inner product on R n . That is, show that the following properties are satisfied (a) u + v , z A = u , z A + v , z A (b) α u , v A = α u , v A (c) u , v A = v , u A (d) u , u A 0 and equality holds if and only if u = 0 2. Which of those properties, if any, fail to hold when A is not positive definite? Which fail to hold if it is not symmetric? Problem 2 1. Let x 1 , x 2 , . . . , x k be an A -orthogonal set of vectors, that is x T i Ax j = 0 for i = j . Show that if A is symmetric and positive definite, then x 1 , x 2 , . . . , x k are linearly independent. Does this hold when A is symmetric but not positive definite? 2. Let x 1 , x 2 , . . . , x n be n linearly independent vectors of R n and A a n × n symmetric positive definite matrix. Show that we can use the Gram-Schmidt algorithm to create a full A -orthogonal set of n vectors. That is, subtracting from x i its A -overlap with x 1 , x 2 , . . . , x i - 1 will never create a zero vector. Problem 3 Let A be a n × n symmetric positive definite matrix. Consider the steepest descent method

### What students are saying

• 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.
