Lecture 4 Linear Maps We have all seen linear maps before. In fact, most of the maps we have been using in Calculus are linear. 4.1 Two Important Examples 4.1.1 The Integral To integrate the function f ( x ) = x 2 + 3 x - cos x over the interval [ a,b ], we first find the antiderivative of x 2 , that is 1 3 x 3 , then the antiderivative of x , which is 1 2 x 2 , and then multiply that by 3 to get 3 2 x 2 . Finally, we find the antiderivative of cos x , which is sin x , and then multiply that by - 1 to get - sin x . To finish the problem we insert the endpoints. Thus, Z 1 - 1 x 2 + 3 x - cos xdx = Z 1 - 1 x 2 dx + 3 Z 1 - 1 xdx - Z 1 - 1 cos xdx = 1 3 x 3 1 - 1 + 3 2 x 2 1 - 1 - [sin x ] 1 - 1 = 2 3 - sin1 + sin( - 1) . What we have used is the fact that the integral is a linear map C ([ a,b ]) -→ R and that 21

To differentiate the function f ( x ) = x 4 - 3 x + e x - cos x , we first differentiate each term of the function and then add: D ( x 4 - 3 x + e x - cos x ) = Dx 4 - 3 Dx + De x - D cos x = 4 x 3 - 3 + e x + sin x. Definition. Let V and W be two vector spaces. A map T : V -→ W is said to be linear if for all v,u V and all r,s R we have: T ( rv + su ) = rT ( v ) + sT ( u ) . Remark: This can also be written by using two equations:
