VyLLuo=O (a) Write dom.11 the rnatriccs A arid K = ATCA (b) Prove by two tests (pivots, dctcrrninants, indcpcridcncc of colurnns of A) that this matrix K is (positivc definite) (positivc scrnidcfinitc). Tell me which two tests you are using! Dctcrrninarits of h': cl + c2 (1 x 1) and clc~ ((2 x 2) Pivots of c1 + c2 arid clca/(cl + c2) Indcpcridcncc of colurnns of A: (1, -1) and (0,l) All prove positivc definiteness of K (c) hlultiply column times row to corriputc the "clcrncnt rnatriccs" KI, h;: Cornputc Kl = (column 1of rlT)(c~)(row 1 of A) 7 1 - 11 01 - "Lo 01 Cornputc h; = 2 of rlT)(c2)(row 2 of A) r -11 Then h' = KI + K2.
