MATH 211 FALL 2010, ASSIGNMENT SIX (DUE FRIDAY, DEC. 3 IN CLASS BEFORE THE LECTURE BEGINS) Show your work neatly and clearly. Illegible or disorganized solutions will receive no credit. (1) Show that A and A T have the same eigenvalues. Are the eigenvalues of A and of A - 1 related at all? [3] (2) Let S be the subspace of R 3 spanned by vectors (1 , - 1 , 2) and (0 , 1 , 1) and let P be the 3 by 3 projection matrix onto the space S . Find all the eigenvalues for P and a basis for each corresponding eigenspace. This requires very little calculation! Does R 3 have an orthonormal basis consisting of eigenvectors of P ? Explain. [4] (3) Let A be a 3 by 3 matrix with eigenvalues - 3 , 1 and 2. Find each of the following (with justifications): a) N ( A ). [1] b) rank ( A - I ). [1] c) det A . [1] d) trace ( A - 1 ). [1] e) trace (( A -

    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.
