18.06 Quiz 3 May 8, 2010 Professor Strang Your PRINTED name is: 1. Your recitation number is 2. 3. 1. (40 points) Suppose u is a unit vector in R n , so u T u = 1 . This problem is about the n by n symmetric matrix H = I 2 uu T . (a) Show directly that H 2 = I. Since H = H T , we now know that H is not only symmetric but also . (b) One eigenvector of H is u itself. Find the corresponding eigenvalue. (c) If v is any vector perpendicular to u, show that v is an eigenvector of H and fnd the eigenvalue. With all these eigenvectors v, that eigenvalue must be repeated how many times? Is H diagonalizable ? Why or why not? (d) Find the diagonal entries H 11 and H ii in terms of u 1 ,...,u n . Add up H 11 + ... + H nn and separately add up the eigenvalues of H.

2. (30 points) Suppose A is a positive defnite symmetric n by n matrix. (a) How do you know that A 1 is also positive defnite? (We know A 1 is symmetric. I just had an e-mail From the International Monetary ±und with this question.) (b) Suppose Q is any orthogonal n by n matrix. How do you know that QAQ T = QAQ 1 is positive defnite? Write down which test you are using. (c) Show that the block matrix A A B = A A is positive semidefnite . How do you know B is not positive defnite?

Unformatted text preview: question is about the matrix 1 A = 4 . (a) Find its eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Write the vector u (0) = 2 as a combination of those eigenvectors. du (b) Solve the equation = Au starting with the same vector u (0) at time t = 0 . dt In other words: the solution u ( t ) is what combination of the eigenvectors of A ? (c) Find the 3 matrices in the Singular Value Decomposition A = U V T in two steps. First, compute V and using the matrix A T A. Second, nd the (orthonormal) columns of U.
