Subspaces
Definition and Examples
Definition
Let V be a vector space and let S be a subset of V such that S is a vector space with
the same + and * from V. Then S is called a subspace of V.
Remark: Every vector space V contains at least two subspace, name
Change of Basis
Coordinates
Consider the vector v = (2,5,3) in R3. In writing these coordinates we mean
v = 2e1 + 5e2 + 3e3
Where
e1 = (1,0,0)
e2 = (0,1,0)
e3 = (0,0,1)
are the standard basis vectors. Sometimes we are interested in finding the coordinates

Theory of Systems of Linear Differential Equations
It turns out that the theory of systems of linear differential equations resembles the theory of
higher order differential equations. This discussion will adopt the following notation. Consider
the system
Systems with Complex Eigenvalues
In the last section, we found that if
x' = Ax
is a homogeneous linear system of differential equations, and r is an eigenvalue with
eigenvector z, then
x = zert
is a solution. (Note that x and z are vectors.) In this discu

Orthonormal Bases in Rn
Orthonormal Bases
We all understand what it means to talk about the point (4,2,1) in R3. Implied in this notation is
that the coordinates are with respect to the standard basis (1,0,0), (0,1,0), and (0,0,1). We learn
that to sketch
Homogeneous Systems
In this discussion we will investigate how to solve certain homogeneous systems of linear
differential equations. We will also look at a sketch of the solutions.
Example
Consider the system of differential equations
x' = x + y
y' = -2x
