Please submit them by placing them in the box marked Assignments outside the Maths Office (Burnside Hall, 10th floor). Show all working and justifications! (1) (a) (i) Is transposition A A T a linear transformation? [ 1 mark ] (ii) Write down the matrix T representing transposition on the vector space of 2 2 matri- ces. Use the basis given by the four matrices 1 0 0 0 , 0 1 0 0 , 0 0 1 0 and 0 0 0 1 . [ 3 marks ] (iii) Why must T 2 = I ? [ 1 mark ] (b) (i) Find the matrix R z representing a 90 anticlockwise rotation about the z-axis in R 3 . Use the standard basis. [ 2 marks ] (ii) Repeat for the matrix R x representing a 90 anticlockwise rotation about the x-axis in R 3 . [ 2 marks ] (iii) Show that R x R z 6 = R z R x (rotations in R 3 dont commute). [ 1 mark ] [ Total: 10 marks ] (2) The set P of all polynomials in x with real coefficients is a real vector space of infinite dimension. (a) Show that the infinite set 1 , x , x 2 , x 3 ,... is a basis of P by demonstrating linear indepen- dence and arguing why it spans P . [ 1 mark ] (b) Construct the (infinite) matrix D representing the linear transformation which takes p ( x ) to its derivative p ( x ) . Use the basis given above. [ 1 mark ] (c) Consider the function on P taking p ( x ) to xp ( x ) . Show that this is a linear transformation, and find the matrix M representing it, again with respect to the above basis.representing it, again with respect to the above basis....
