Unformatted text preview: Problem 0.5 Show that For any nonempty set S n , a S = a (cl S ) = a (co S ) = a ( co S ) , co S = co (cl S ) = co (co S ) . Problem 0.6 Let A R n be an afne maniFold. By denition, a set B A is an afne basis For A iF a( B ) = A and the elements oF B are afnely independent. Use what you already know about linear subspaces to show: (a) A has an afne basis; (b) every afne basis For A has cardinality equal to dim( A ) + 1; (c) B is an afne basis For A iF and only iF B is a minimal element with respect to the property that a( B ) = A ; (d) iF S R n is such that a( S ) = A then S contains an afne basis For A ; (e) every x A can be expressed in a unique way as an afne combination oF the elements oF an afne basis B . 1...
