MATH 4 Fall 2010 Instructor: Professor R. C. Reilly Assignment #5 Reading Assignments Note: All section and page numbers which start with ‘Leon’ refer to the textbook for the first half of the course: ‘Linear Algebra and Applications (8th edition)’, by S. Leon, or the corresponding ‘Custom Edition for UCI’. Section and page numbers which start with ‘Stewart’ refer to the text for the second half of the course: ‘Multivariable Calculus (6th edition)’, by J. Stewart, or the corresponding ‘Custom Edition for UCI’. You are expected to do the assigned readings before the corresponding lectures. Monday 11/01/2010: ‘Leon’, Section 6.3 Note: I’ll be giving a simpler approach to this material in the lecture; see the last page of this assignment. Wednesday 11/03/2010: ‘Stewart’, Sections 13.1, 13.2, 13.3. Note: In a sense, this is material that you are already somewhat familiar with from the first half of the course: vectors in IR 2 and IR 3 , linear combinations, and so on. However, the Stewart text does not assume that you have seen very much linear algebra; in particular, Stewart does not talk about n -dimensional vectors for n 4. Because of this, Stewart can be much more ‘geometry oriented’ – especially in the use of pictures – than Leon was. I’ll try to make clear in the lectures how the Stewart and Leon approaches to ‘vectors’ relate to each other. For that to make sense, however, it is particularly important that you read the ‘Stewart’ material before I talk about it in the lectures. Friday 11/05/2010: ‘Stewart’ Sections 13.4 and 13.5 Things to Prepare for the Discussions Note: These are problems/examples/topics which the Teaching Assistants (TAs) will cover in the discussion sections. You are expected to work on them before you go to the discussions. (A) Prepare these items for the discussion on Tuesday 11/02/2010.
