OPEN BOOK EXAM Write solutions onto these pages ! Circles around short answers please !! 1) (32 pts.) This problem is about the symmetric matrix 2 1 H = 1 2 1 1 1 (a) By elimination find the triangular L and diagonal D in H = LDL T . H (b) What is the smallest number q that could replace the corner entry 33 = 1 and still leave H positive semi definite ? q = (c) H comes from the 3step framework for a hanging line of springs: A C A T displacements elongations spring forces external force f What are the specific matrices A and C in H = A T CA ? (d) What are the requirements on any m by n matrix A and any symmetric matrix C for A T CA to be positive definite ? 2 1 2 1 1....
