Unformatted text preview: A as A + B = [ ab b a ] + [ cd d c ] = [ a + c( b + d ) ( b + d ) a + c ] and the scalar multiplication as α [ ab b a ] = [ αaαb αb αa ] . • Show that the collection ( A ) forms a vector space. • Find a basis of ( A ) and give dim( A ). 2. Inner Product Space (a) Let x = α 1 e 1 + α 2 e 2 and y = β 1 e 1 + β 2 e 2 are a pair of geometric vectors in R 2 . Verify that one may deﬁne the following inner product in R 2 . ( x , y ) = 2 α 1 β 1 + 3 α 2 β 2 . (b) If y 1 , · · · , y n are vectors orthogonal to x , show that any vector in span( y 1 , · · · , y n ) is orthogonal to x ....
