MthSc 853 (Linear Algebra) Dr. Macauley HW 9 Due Friday, April 1st, 2011 (1) Consider the following matrix: M n = ± 0 - a 0 I n - 1 - a n - 1 ² where a n = a 1 a 2 . . . a n . (a) Show that the characteristic polynomial of M n is P M n ( t ) = t n + a n - 1 t n - 1 + ··· + a 1 t + a 0 . Here, I n - 1 denotes the ( n - 1) × ( n - 1) identity matrix. (b) Is P M n ( t ) also the minimal polynomial? Prove or disprove. (c) Now, let X be a 4 dimensional vector space over R with basis { x 1 ,x 2 ,x 3 ,x 4 } and let T : X X be a linear map such that T ( x 1 ) = x 2 , T ( x 2 ) = x 3 , T ( x 3 ) = x 4 , T ( x 4 ) = - x 1 - 4 x 2 - 6 x 3 - 4 x 4 . Is T diagonalizable over C ? (2) Prove that in a real Euclidean space, || x || = max { ( x,y ): || y || = 1 } . (3) Let f and g be continuous functions on the interval [0 , 1]. Prove the following inequalities. (a) ±Z 1 0 f ( t ) g ( t ) dt ² 2 Z 1 0 f ( t ) 2 dt Z 1 0 g ( t ) 2 dt (b) ±Z 1 0 ( f ( t ) + g ( t )) 2 dt ² 1 / 2 ±Z 1 0 f ( t ) 2 dt ² 1 / 2 + ±Z 1 0 g ( t ) 2 dt ² 1 / 2 . (4) Use the Gram-Schmidt process to find an orthonormal basis for the subspace of R 4 spanned by y 1 = (1 , 2 , 1 , 1), y 2 = (1 , - 1 , 0 , 2) and y 3 = (2 , 0 , 1 , 1).
