We discuss some examples to consider how linear transformations transform the plane R 2 . Denote the following three 2dimensional vectors ~u = 1 , ~v = , and ~w = 2 . We will consider several types of transformations. To begin, consider the linear transformation T : R 2 R 2 defined by T ( ~x ) = 1 1 ~x that is T x 1 x 2 = 1 1 x 1 x 2 = x 2 x 1 . The three 2dimensional vectors transform to T ( ~u ) = 1 , T ( ~v ) = , and T ( ~w ) = 2 . Hence T is a rotation by 90 in the counterclockwise direction. With this example in mind, consider now the following six matrices: A = 2 0 0 2 B = 1 0 0 0 C = 1 0 0 1 D = 0 1 1 0 E = 1 0 . 5 1 F = 1 1 1 1 Multiplication by A is a scaling by a factor of 2: A~u = 2 , A~v = , and A ~w = 4 . Multiplication by B is a projection onto the horizontal axis : B ~u = 1 , B~v = , and B ~w = ....
