CAAM 336 · DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS Problem Set 3 Posted Wednesday 24 January 2007. Due Wednesday 31 January 2007 in class. 1. [20 points] Consider the following sets. Demonstrate whether or not each is a vector space (with addition and scalar multiplication deFned in the obvious way). (a) { x R 2 : x 2 2 = x 1 } (b) { x R 3 :4 x 1 + x 2 +2 x 3 =0 } (c) { f C [0 , 1] : f (0) 0 } (d) { f C [0 , 1] : max x [0 , 1] f ( x ) 1 } (e) { f C 2 [0 , 1] : d 2 f/dx 2 = 0 for all x [0 , 1] } 2. [24 points] Recall that a function f : V W that maps a vector space V to a vector space W is a linear operator provided (1) f ( u + v )= f ( u )+ f ( v ) for all u, v in V , and (2) f ( αv αf ( v ) for all α R and v V . Demonstrate whether each of the following functions is a linear operator. (Show that both properties hold, or give an example showing that one of the properties must fail.) (a) f :R n R m , f ( u Au for a Fxed matrix A R m × n . (b) f n R m , f ( u Au + b for a Fxed matrix A R m × n and Fxed vector b R m .
