Vector Spaces and Subspaces Recall in § 1 . 3 we looked at vector equations where our vectors were from R 2 , R 3 , R 4 , . . . , R n , n 1 . R 2 , R 3 , R n are all examples of vector spaces . A vector space is a non-empty set of elements called vectors . The set is usually denoted by V and an element in V by v . v V v is an element of V Two operations are defined on V , called addition and multiplication by scalars subject to the following axioms. — Winter 2008 – p. 2/10

For all u , v , w V and scalars c, d 1. u + v V 2. u + v = v + u 3. ( u + v ) + w = u + ( v + w ) 4. There is a zero vector 0 V such that u + 0 = u . 5. For each u V there is a vector - u V such that u + ( - u ) = 0 6. c u V 7. c ( u + v ) = c u + c v 8. ( c + d ) u = c u + c v 9. c ( d u ) = ( cd ) u 10. 1 u = u — Winter 2008 – p. 3/10

Subspaces A subsect H of a vector space V satisfying the following three properties is called a subspace 1. 0 V is also in H . i.e. 0 H . 2. H is closed under addition. i.e. for all u , v H, u + v H 3. H is closed under scalar multiplication. i.e. for all
