Unformatted text preview: MATH 304, Fall 2011 Linear Algebra Homework assignment #8 (due Thursday, November 3) All problems are from Leons book. Section 4.3: 4, 11 Section 5.1: 3c, 5, 7, 17 Section 5.2: 1b, 2a, 4, 9 MATH 304505 Linear Algebra Part III ( 3.5 weeks): Advanced linear algebra Orthogonality Inner products and norms The GramSchmidt orthogonalization process Eigenvalues and eigenvectors Diagonalization Leons book : Chapter 5, sections 6.16.3 MATH 304 Linear Algebra Lecture 17: Euclidean structure in R n . Orthogonality. Orthogonal complement. Vectors: geometric approach A B A B A vector is represented by a directed segment. Directed segment is drawn as an arrow. Different arrows represent the same vector if they are of the same length and direction. Vectors: geometric approach A B A B v v AB denotes the vector represented by the arrow with tip at B and tail at A . AA is called the zero vector and denoted . Vectors: geometric approach A B A B v v If v = AB then BA is called the negative vector of v and denoted v . Linear structure: vector addition Given vectors a and b , their sum a + b is defined by the rule AB + BC = AC . That is, choose points A , B , C so that AB = a and BC = b . Then a + b = AC . A B C A B C a b a + b a b a + b The difference of the two vectors is defined as a b = a + ( b ). a b b a Linear structure: scalar multiplication Let v be a vector and r R . By definition, r v is a vector whose magnitude is  r  times the magnitude of v . The direction of r v coincides with that of v if r > 0. If r < 0 then the directions of r v and v are opposite. v 3 v 2 v Beyond linearity: length of a vector The length (or the magnitude ) of a vector AB is the length of the representing segment AB . The length of a vector v is denoted  v  or bardbl v bardbl . Properties of vector length:  x  0,  x  = 0 only if x = (positivity)  r x  =  r  x  (homogeneity)  x + y   x  +  y  (triangle inequality) x y x + y Beyond linearity: angle between vectors Given nonzero vectors x and y , let A , B , and C be points such that AB = x and AC = y . Then BAC is called the angle between x and y ....
