1 Lecture 3 3.1 Linear dependence Let X = { 1 v , 2 v , …, k v } be a set of vectors in a vector space V. If r 1 1 v + r 2 2 v + … + r k k v = 0 for some 0 j r , j = 1, 2, …, k, then X is a linearly dependent set. Otherwise, X is a linearly independent set. Example: Is the set {sin 2 x, cos 2 x,1} linearly dependent or independent? Examples: In each case determine if the set of vectors is independence. { 0 1 2 1 , 3 1 0 2 , 6 5 6 1 }, {e x , e 2x }, {1, x, x 2 , …, x n , …} Example: Let V denote a vector space. Prove: 1. If 0 v in V, then { v } is an independent set. 2. No independent set of vectors in V can contain the zero vector. 3. If { 1 v , 2 v , …, k v } is independent in V, so is { a 1 1 v , a 2 2 v , …, a k k v } if 0 i a .
