K n , which takes a vector in W to its coor- dinate vector with respect to C , is a linear isomorphism. For any T 2 Hom K .V;W / , the j –th column of ŒT Ł C;B is S C .T.v j // . If ŒT Ł C;B D 0 , then S C .T.v j // D 0 for all j and hence T.v j / D 0 for all j . It follows that T D 0 . This shows that T 7! ŒT Ł C;B is injective. Now let A D .a i;j / be any n –by– m matrix over K . We need to produce a linear map T 2 Hom K .V;W / such that ŒT Ł C;B D A . If such a T exists, then for each j , the coordinate vector of T.v j / with respect to C must be equal to the j –th column of A . Thus we require T.v j / D P n i D 1 a i;j w i WD a j . By Proposition 3.3.32 , there is a unique T 2 Hom K .V;W / such that T.v j / D a j for all j . This proves that T 7! ŒT Ł B;C is surjective. Assertion (b) is immediate from (a). n Proposition 3.4.11. Let V , W , X be finite–dimensional vector spaces over
