Math 136 Assignment #2 Winter 2008 Topics: Vector spaces and subspaces Due Date: January 23rd. Note 1: Below we always assume that all vector spaces are over R , i.e., the scalars are chosen from reals (unless otherwise specified). Below I n denotes the n × n identity matrix. Note 2: Assume vector addition and scalar multiplication follows the standard definition. 1. Say if the following is true or false. Please justify your answers. (a) Let A 1 = n ± x y ² : x 0 ,y 0 o and A 2 = n ± x y ² : x < 0 ,y > 0 o . Is A 1 A 2 ( A 1 union A 2 ) a subspace of R 2 ? (b) Is the set of all polynomials of degree n ( n a positive integer) in variable x , with even (integer) coefficients (including 0) a subspace of the vector space of all polynomials? 2 (a) Show that the set of all m × n matrices with complex entries denoted M m × n is a vector space. Which is the zero vector of this space? (b) Show that H = nh a - b b d i : a,b,d, C o is a subspace of M 2 × 2 . 3. Let V be a vector space. Let u V . Prove the following (using axioms of vector space): [ Hint: See exercises 25, 26, 27, 28 in Section 4.1. ] Let c be a scalar. If

(b) If u H , then c u H for all scalars c R . Is H a subspace of V ? 5. Let H,K be subspaces of a vector space V . (a) Is H K ( H intersection K ) a subspace of V ? (b) Is H K ( H union K ) a subspace of V ? (c) Is A = { w =-u + 2 v : u H, v K } a subspace of V ? 1 6 (a) Let V be a vector space. Let v , u V . Show that span { v , u } is a subspace of V .
