ISM: Linear Algebra Section 8.2 21. a. In each case, it is informative to think about the intersections with the three coordinate planes: x 1 - x 2 , x 1 - x 3 , and x 2 - x 3 . For the surface x 2 1 + 4 x 2 2 + 9 x 2 3 = 1, all these intersections are ellipses , and the surface itself is an ellipsoid . This surface is connected and bounded; the points closest to the origin are ± 0 0 1 3 , and those farthest ± 1 0 0 . (See Figure 8.9.) x 3 x 1 x 2 Figure 8.9: for Problem 8.2.21a: x 2 1 + 4 x 2 2 + 9 x 2 3 = 1 , an ellipsoid (not to scale). In the case of x 2 1 + 4 x 2 2 - 9 x 2 3 = 1, the intersection with the x 1 - x 2 plane is an ellipse, and the two other intersections are hyperbolas. The surface is connected and not bounded; the points closest to the origin are ± 0 1 2 0 . (See Figure 8.10.) In the case - x 2 1 - 4 x 2 2 + 9 x 2 3 = 1, the intersection with the x 1 - x 2 plane is empty, and the two other intersections are hyperbolas. The surface consists of two pieces and is 415

The points closest to the origin are ± 0 0 1 3 . (See Figure 8.11.) b. A = 1 1 2 1 1 2 2 3 2 1 3 2 3 is positive definite, with three positive eigenvalues λ 1 , λ 2 , λ 3 . The surface is given by λ 1 c 2 1 + λ 2 c 2 2 + λ 3 c 2 3 = 1 with respect to the principal axes, an ellipsoid . To find the points closest to and farthest from the origin, use technology to find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors: eigenvalues: λ 1 0 . 56 , λ 2 4 . 44 , λ 3 = 1 unit eigenvectors: v 1 0 . 86 0 . 19 - 0 . 47 , v 2 0 . 31 0 . 54 0 . 78 , v 3 = 1 6 1 - 2 1 Equation: 0 . 56 c 2 1 + 4 . 44 c 2 2 + c 2 3 = 1 Farthest points when c 1 = ± 1 0 . 56 and c 2 = c 3 = 0 Closest points when c 2 = ± 1 4 . 44 and c 1 = c 3 = 0 416
