DUE MONDAY MARCH 8TH
(1) Write down matrix representations of the following linear transformations. Also
explain as well as you can what this linear transformation does geometrically. Fix an
orthonormal basis u, v for R2 and an orthonormal bas

DUE FRIDAY MARCH 26TH
(1) Are the following matrices diagonalizable? If so, nd a diagonal matrix similar to
them. If not, justify why they arent diagonalizable.
(Hint, look at the solutions to an old worksheet)
DUE WEDNESDAY JANUARY 27TH
(1) Suppose that f exists.

PRACTICE FOR EXAM #1
1. Write down the Taylor series for the following functions centered at a.
(a) f (x) = e(x ) centered at a = 0.
f ( x) =
Note the uniqueness of power series (see the last page of problems) implies that thi
NOTES ON INJECTIVE AND SURJECTIVE FUNCTIONS
First we recall the denition of a function.
Denition 0.1. A function is the following information.
(a) A domain = D. In other words, a set of allowable input values.
(b) A codomain = C . In
WORKSHEET ON EIGENVALUES AND EIGENVECTORS
Denition 0.1. Suppose that T : Rn Rn is a linear transformation.1 A non-zero vector v Rn
is called a eigenvector for T if there exists a number such that T (v) = v. In this case, the
number is called an
INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS
