Matrix Theory, Math6304 Lecture Notes from August 30, 2012 taken by Andy Chang Last Time (8/28/12) Course info: website - math.uh.edu/ bgb Matrix multiplication: left (premultiplication) and right (postmultiplication) Nullity and rank: ”dimension counting” Dot product and orthogonality: inner product, orthogonal projection, least squares property Gram-Schmidt: -seto fl inea r lyindependentvecto rscany ie ldano rthono rma lsetthatspans the space 1 Further Review 1.1 Gram-Schmidt (cont’d) 1.1.9 Proposition (Gram-Schmidt) . Given a linearly independent set { x 1 ,x 2 ,...,x n } in C m , then there exists an orthonormal system { z 1 ,z 2 ,...,z n } such that for each j n , span { x l : l j } =span { z l : l j } . Proof. Since orthonormality implies linear independence, the dimension of both sides is equal. It is enough to show that we can Fnd inductively for each j n avec to r z j which forms an orthonormal system { z 1 2 j } with the preceding ones and z j = u j, 1 x 1 + u j, 2 x 2 + ··· + u j,j x j , with appropriate coefficients u j,k ,so z j span { x l : l j } . As a consequence, z k span { x l : l j } for k j and thus span { z l : l j }⊂ span { x l : l j } but since the dimension on both sides is equal, the two spans must be the same.
