ection 3 2 Section 3.2 Linear Combinations and Linear Spans Objective •What ± is ±a ± linear span ? ± ± subspace ? • What are some subspaces of R n ? hat is a olution space f a LS? What is a solution space of a LS? • How to show a linear span is contained in another? Other terminologies Chapter 3 Vector Spaces 2 vector space, zero space, “redundant” vectors closure property

Introduction (-1, 1, 1), (7, 2, -1) and (0, 0, 0) These vectors are called They are all of the form: s (2, 1, 0) + t (-3, 0, 1) linear combinations of (2,1,0) and (-3,0,1) How many linear combinations of (2,1,0) and (-3,0,1) are there? Infinite The set of all linear combinations of (2,1,0) and (-3,0,1) {s (2, 1, 0) + t (-3, 0, 1 ) | s, t œ R } e call it: the near span f 10) nd 01) Chapter 3 Vector spaces 3 We call it: the linear span of (2,1,0) and (-3,0,1) We write it: span{ (2,1,0) , (-3,0,1) }

What is a linear span? Definition 3.2.3.1 S = { u , u , …, u } : a (finite) subset of R n . 1 2 k The set of all linear combinations of u 1 , u 2 , …, u k { c 1 u 1 + c 2 u 2 + ··· + c k u k | c 1 , c 2 , …, c k in R } his set is called c 1 1 2 2 k k c 1 , c 2 , …, c k in R = = This set is called the linear span of u 1 , u 2 , …, u k It is an (infinite) subset of R n . or the linear span of S Linear span ” is always used with a set of vectors Chapter 3 Vector spaces 4 This set is denoted by span{ u 1 , u 2 , …, u k } or span( S )

Express a linear span in explicit set notation form Example 3.2.6.1 S = {(1, 0, 0, 1), (0, 1, 1, 0)} Œ R 4 A general vector in span( S ): a (1, 0, 0, –1) + b (0, 1, 1, 0) = ( a , b , b , – a ). xplicit form span( S ) = { a (1, 0, 0, –1) + b (0, 1, 1, 0)| a , b œ R } = { ( a , b , b , a ) | a , b œ R } explicit form = span{(1, 0, 0, 1), (0, 1, 1, 0)} linear span form Not every element of R 4 is an element of span( S ). span( S ) Œ R 4 . Chapter 3 Vector spaces 5 So span( S ) R 4 .

Geometrical meaning of linear span Discussion 3.2.7 span = extend across (Oxford Dictionary) S = { u } span(S) = span{ u } = { c u | c in R } u the origin In R 2 and R 3 the line through the origin and parallel to u span(S) = span{ u , v } S = { u , v } = { s u + t v | s , t œ R } v In R 2 and R 3 the plane containing Chapter 3 Vector spaces 7 u the origin and parallel to u and v

How to express a given subset as linear span? Example 3.2.6.3 V 2 = { ( x , y , z ) | x + y z = 0 } subset of R 3 implicit form explicit form V 2 = { ( t - s , s, t ) | s, t œ R } = ( 0 + ( s±0) ± ( t - s , s, t ) = ( t , 0, t ) + ( - s , s, 0) = t (1, 0, 1) + s ( - 1, 1, 0) the set of ll linear combinations f V 2 is the set of all linear combinations of (1, 0, 1) and (-1, 1, 0) ±span{(1±0±1)±(- 1 0)} near span form ( V 2 is a plane in R 3 .) V 2 = span{(1, 0, 1), ( 1, 1, 0)} linear span form Chapter 3 Vector spaces 8 Not every subset of R 4 can be expressed in linear span form
