Unformatted text preview: MATH 304, Fall 2011 Linear Algebra Homework assignment #8 (due Thursday, November 3) All problems are from Leons book (8th edition). Section 4.3: 4, 11 Section 5.1: 3c, 5, 7, 17 Section 5.2: 1b, 2a, 4, 9 MATH 304 Linear Algebra Lecture 18: Orthogonal complement (continued). Orthogonal projection. Least squares problems. Euclidean structure Euclidean structure in R n includes: length of a vector:  x  , angle between vectors: , dot product: x y =  x  y  cos . A B C y x Length and distance Definition. The length of a vector v = ( v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v n ) R n is bardbl v bardbl = radicalbig v 2 1 + v 2 2 + + v 2 n . The distance between vectors/points x and y is bardbl y x bardbl . Properties of length: bardbl x bardbl 0, bardbl x bardbl = 0 only if x = (positivity) bardbl r x bardbl =  r bardbl x bardbl (homogeneity) bardbl x + y bardbl bardbl x bardbl + bardbl y bardbl (triangle inequality) Scalar product Definition. The scalar product of vectors x = ( x 1 , x 2 , . . . , x n ) and y = ( y 1 , y 2 , . . . , y n ) is x y = x 1 y 1 + x 2 y 2 + + x n y n . Properties of scalar product: x x 0, x x = 0 only if x = (positivity) x y = y x (symmetry) ( x + y ) z = x z + y z (distributive law) ( r x ) y = r ( x y ) (homogeneity) In particular, x y is a bilinear function (i.e., it is both a linear function of x and a linear function of y ). Angle CauchySchwarz inequality:  x y  bardbl x bardblbardbl y bardbl . By the CauchySchwarz inequality, for any nonzero vectors x , y R n we have cos = x y bardbl x bardblbardbl y bardbl for a unique 0 . is called the angle between the vectors x and y . The vectors x and y are said to be orthogonal (denoted x y ) if x y = 0 (i.e., if = 90 o ). Orthogonality Definition 1. Vectors x , y R n are said to be orthogonal (denoted x y ) if x y = 0. Definition 2. A vector x R n is said to be orthogonal to a nonempty set Y R n (denoted x Y ) if x y = 0 for any y Y . Definition 3. Nonempty sets X , Y R n are said to be orthogonal (denoted X Y ) if x y = 0 for any x X and y Y . Orthogonal complement Definition. Let S R n . The orthogonal complement of S , denoted S , is the set of all vectors x R n that are orthogonal to S ....
