Let W be the subspace of R 4 spanned by (1 , , 1 , 2) and (2 , 1 , , 1) and take the inner product to be the dot product. (a) Find the dimension of W ⊥ . (b) Find the vector in W which is closest to the vector (4 , 3 , 2 , 1). (c) Find a basis for W ⊥ . (d) Find the unique w 1 ∈ W and w 2 ∈ W ⊥ such that (4 , 3 , 2 , 1) = w 1 + w 2 . 2. Consider the real vector space C [0 , 1] of continuous functions on inter val [0 , 1] together with the inner product given by < f,g > = R 1 f ( t ) g ( t ) dt for f,g ∈ C [0 , 1]. Let P 2 ( R ) be subspace of C [0 , 1] having a basis given by B = { 1 ,x,x 2 } . Find the best quadratic approximation to √ x on [0 , 1], i.e. find the best approximation to √ x by elements of P 2 ( R ). 3. Find the leastsquares approximation to a solution of Ax = b by con structing the normal equations for ˆ x and then solving for ˆ...
