Denition. Let V be a vector space. A linearly
independent spanning set for V is called a basis.
Equivalently, a subset S V is a basis for V if any
vector v V is uniquely represented as a linea
Some linear transformations on R2

D Joyce, Fall 2015
Lets look at some some linear transformations on the plane R2 . Well look at several
kinds of operators on R2 including reections, rotations, scalings, and others.

UNIT NORMALS ON A SURFACE
Math 311
There are two ways to dene a surface S in space:
1. As the graph of a function f (x, y) or
2. As a level surface of some function g (x, y, z) = 0.
In the later case we say that S is implicitly dened by g. A unit normal v

Basis and Dimension of a Vector Space
In the section on spanning sets and linear independence, we were trying to
understand what the elements of a vector space looked like by studying how
they could be ge
