Set on Friday, Dec 4: Questions 1, 2, 3 and 4
1. Consider the following matrices A= 00 12 B= 1 −1 C= 4 2 0 −1 D = 2 0 31 E= 2 01 −1 3 0 and determine which of them can be multiplied, and in which order, and compute the products. 2. Let us associate with each complex number z = x + iy ∈ C the following matrix x −y A(z ) := . yx Show that (ii) for all z, z ∈ C we have A(z )A(z ) = A(zz ). (i) for all z, z ∈ C we have A(z ) + A(z ) = A(z + z ). (iii) compute the inverse matrix of A(z ), i.e., ﬁnd a 2 × 2 matrix Bz such that Bz A(z ) = I . 3. Let T : Rn → Rm be a linear map and MT = (tij ) the corresponding m × n matrix. Let mj , j = 1, 2, · · · , n, be the column vectors of MT , i.e., mj = (t1j , t2j , · · · , tmj ). Show that (i) T (ej ) = mj and T (x) = x1 m1 + x2 m2 + · · · + xn mn (iii) the image of T is spanned by the column vectors m1 , m2 , · · · , mj of MT , i.e., Im T = span{m1 , m2 , · · · , mn }. 4. Consider the map T : R2 → R2 given by T (x, y ) = (2x − y, 8x − 4y ) . (i) Determine Im T . For which of the following elements b of R2 does there exist a solution x to T (x) = b 0 2 −1 1 8 7 (ii) Determine ker T . Are the column vectors of MT linearly independent? (ii) the column vectors m1 , m2 , · · · , mn of MT are linearly independent if, and only if, ker T = {0}. 1 ...
