1 Vector Spaces and Eigenvalues Lecture XXVII I. Orthonormal Bases and Projections A. Suppose that a set of vectors 1 , r xx for a basis for some space S in m R space such that rm . For mathematical simplicity, we may want to form an orthogonal basis for this space. One way to form such a basis is the Gram-Schmit orthonormalization. In this procedure, we want to generate a new set of vectors 1 , r yy that are orthonormal. B. The Gram-Schmit process is: 11 21 2 2 1 3 1 3 2 33 1 1 2 2 ' ' '' yx xy y x y x y x y y y y y which produces a set of orthogonal vectors, and then 1 2 ' i i ii y z that produces a orthonormal vectors (vectors of length one). C. Example, from last lecture, we know that 16 7 9 , 4 3 1 2 1 x x spans a plane in three dimensional space. Setting , 2 y is derived as: 2 1 70 9 7 16 3 13 91 4 50 73 13 1 16 4 20 1 3 4 3 13 4 y

Theorem 2.14 Let 1 , r zz be an orthornomal basis for some vector space S , of m R . Then each m xR can be expressed uniquely as x u v where uS and v is a vector that is orthogonal to every vector in S . F. Definition 2.10 Let S be a vector subspace of m R . The orthogonal complement of S , denoted S , is the collection of all vectors in m R that are orthogonal to every vector in S : That is, : 0 m S x x R and x y y S .
