Unformatted text preview: n ) . Now just observe that the right hand side is x Ā· a f . This line of reasoning is just what we used to prove Theorem 2 in the ļ¬rst place. 5.25 For any vector Ā± a b c Ā² , deļ¬ne the polynomial p ( x ) = a + bx + cx 2 . In turn, deļ¬ne the number R 1 p ( x )d x . Putting the pieces together, we get a function f from IR 3 to IR ā we deļ¬ne f Ā³Ā± a b c Ā²Ā“ = Z 1 Āµ a + bx + cx 2 Ā¶ d x . (a) Show that f is a linear functional on IR 3 ; i.e., a linear transformation from IR 3 to IR . 21 /september/ 2005; 22:09 43...
