Unformatted text preview: MAT067 University of California, Davis Winter 2007 Homework Set 8: Exercises on Inner Product Spaces Directions : Please work on all of the following exercises and then submit your solutions to the Calculational Problems 1 and 8, and the Proof-Writing Problems 2 and 11 at the beginning of lecture on March 2, 2007. As usual, we are using F to denote either R or C . We also use h , i to denote an arbitrary inner product and k k to denote its associated norm. 1. Let ( e 1 , e 2 , e 3 ) be the canonical basis of R 3 , and define f 1 = e 1 + e 2 + e 3 f 2 = e 2 + e 3 f 3 = e 3 . (a) Apply the Gram-Schmidt process to the basis ( f 1 , f 2 , f 3 ). (b) What would you obtain if you applied the Gram-Schmidt process to the basis ( f 3 , f 2 , f 1 )? 2. Let V be a finite-dimensional inner product space over F . Given any vectors u, v V , prove that the following two statements are equivalent: (a) h u, v i = 0 (b) k u k k u + v k for every F ....
