Math 235 Assignment 7 Due: Wednesday, Nov 10th 1. For each quadratic form Q ( ~x ), determine the corresponding symmetric matrix A . By diagonalizing A , Write Q so that it has no cross terms and give the change of variables which brings it into this form. Classify each quadratic form as positive definite, negative definite or indefinite. a) Q ( x,y ) = 5 x 2 + 6 xy - 3 y 2 . b) Q ( x,y,z ) = 7 x 2 + 8 xy + y 2 + 8 xz - 16 yz + z 2 2. Let A = - 1 3 - 1 0 1 2 0 2 1 . Find an orthogonal matrix P and upper triangular matrix
