These notes closely follow the presentation of the material given in David C. Lay’s textbook Linear Algebra and its Applications (3rd edition). These notes are intended primarily for in-class presentation and should not be regarded as a substitute for thoroughly reading the textbook itself and working through the exercises therein. The Matrix of a Linear Transformation We have seen that any matrix transformation x A x is a linear transformation. The converse is also true. Specifically, if T : n   m is a linear transformation, then there is a unique m n matrix, A , such that T x A x for all x n . The next example illustrates how to find this matrix. Example Let T : 2   3 be the linear transformation defined by T x 1 x 2 x 1 2 x 2 x 2 3 x 1 5 x 2 . Find the matrix, A, such that T x A x for all x 2 . Solution The key here is to use the two “standard basis” vectors for 2 . These are the vectors e 1 1 0 and e 2 0 1 . Any vector x x 1 x 2 2 is a linear combination of e 1 and e 2 because x x 1 x 2 x 1 0 0 x 2 x 1 e 1 x 2 e 2 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
