In the vector space R 2 [ t ], consider the basis B = { 1 , 1 + t, 1 + t + t 2 } , the basis D = { 1 + t + t 2 , t + t 2 , t 2 } and the vector v = 2 t 2 1. a) Find [ v ] B and [ v ] D . (That is, find the coordinates of v in the B basis, and the coordinates of v in the D basis.) b) Find the changeofbasis matrices P BD and P DB . 2. Consider the operator L : R 2 [ t ] → R 2 [ t ] defined by ( L p )( t ) = p ( t +1) p ( t ). a) Find the matrix of L in the standard basis { 1 , t, t 2 } . b) Find the matrix of L in the basis B = { 1 , 1 + t, 1 + t + t 2 } (this is the same basis B you saw in problem 1). 3. Matrices and eigenvalues: a) Find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the matrix 2 1 4 2 1 1 2 . b) Find a matrix whose eigenvalues are 1 , 3 , 4 and eigenvectors are 1 3 1 2 2 , 1 3 2 1 2 and 1 3  2 2 1 . [Hint: there is an easy way to compute P 1 ] 4. Let A = 1 2 2 4 . (You may find useful the fact that A is Hermitian, but you don’t need this fact to solve the problem)....
