1 1 MAC 2103 Module 9 General Vector Spaces II 2 Rev.F09 Learning Objectives Upon completing this module, you should be able to: 1. Find the coordinate vector with respect to the standard basis for any vector in ℜⁿ ± 2. Find the coordinate vector with respect to another basis. 3. Determine the dimension of a vector space V from a basis for V. 4. Find a basis for and the dimension of the null space of A, null(A). 5. Find a basis for and the dimension of the column space of A, col(A). a) Show that the non-leading columns of A are linearly dependent since they can be written as a linear combination of the leading columns of A. b) Show that the leading columns of A are linearly independent and therefore form a basis for col(A). 6. Find a basis for and the dimension of the row space of A, row(A). http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules.

In module 8, we have learned that if we let S = { v 1 , v 2 , … , v r } be a finite set of non-zero vectors in a vector space V, the vector equation has at least one solution, namely the trivial solution , 0 = k 1 = k 2 = … = k r . If the only solution is the trivial solution, then S is a linearly independent set. Otherwise, S is a linearly dependent set. If every vector in the vector space V can be expressed as a linear combination of the vectors in S, then S is the spanning set of the vector space V. If S is a linearly independent set, then S is a basis for V and span(S) = V. k 1 ! v 1 + k 2 ! v 2 + ... + k r ! v r = k i ! v i i = 1 r ! = ! 0
3 5 Rev.F09 What is the Coordinate Vector with Respect to the Standard Basis for any Vector? http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. The set of standard basis vectors in ℜⁿ is B = { e 1 , e 2 , … , e n }. If v ˥ ℜⁿ , then and has components The coordinate vector v B has the coefficients from the linear combination of the basis vectors as its components. So, A better name might be coefficient vector, but it is not used. So, v is its own coordinate vector with respect to the standard basis, ! v = v 1 v 2 ... v n !
