Section 4.2: 31
Section 4.4: 13
Section 4.7: 5
Section 5.4: 5, 11
Section 5.5: 5
Section 7.1: 17


Assignment #12 (due Fri. 6/1):

Read as much of Section 7.2 as is necessary to do...
Section 7.2: 1, 3a, 5a, 27
11A: Let L:V->W be a linear transformation, and let dim V = dim W.
Prove that L is 1-1 if and only if L is onto.
Hints: THM 1: L is 1-1 iff ker(L)={0}.
THM 2: If dim V = n, then dim(ker(L)) + dim(range(L)) = n.


Assignment #10 (due Wed. 5/30):

Section 4.4: 21, 22
Section 5.4: 1, 3, 5, 9
10A: Recall that, for a linear transformation L:V->W, we have that (range L) is a subspace of W.
Finish our proof from class by showing that (range L) is closed under scalar multiplication.


Assignment #9 (due Tue. 5/29):

Section 4.2: 31, 33, 34, 36
Section 4.4: 23, 24, 25, 28
Section 4.5: 31
9A: Prove the following Corollary from class...
For a linear transformation L, if L(x) = v and L(y) = v, then x-y is in ker L.


Assignment #8 (due Mon. 5/28):

Section 4.4: 13, 19, 25, 35
Section 4.7: 1, 3, 9, 13
8A: Let [u]_s denote the coordiante vector of u with respect to basis S.
Given vectors u,v and real scalar c, prove that
(i) [u+v]_s = [u]_s + [v]_s
(ii) [cu]_s = c[u]_s

Section 6.2: 29


Assignment #6 (due Wed. 5/23):

Section 6.1: 19
Section 6.2: 12, 15, 33 (Consider A'A... what's going on here?)
Section 6.3: 1, 8, 19
Section 6.4: 10

5A: Write an m-file to define a new MATLAB function "gs(A)" that applies the Gram-Schmidt process to the columns of a matrix A. All the following work should be done in MATLAB.
Further instructions (necessary)
Excessive hints (optional)
gs.m (rough m-file template... recommneded)

       |  1  2  3  0  |
   A = |  3  0 -3  2  |
       | -2  1  4 -1  |
(i) Apply your gs function to A. Let B=gs(A).
(ii) Verify that B's columns are orthonomal by computing B'*B. What should the result be, and why?
(iii) Verify that B's columns span the column space of A by solving Bx=v for each column v of A (use rref([B A(:,j)]) for each column j). Briefly explain the zero values in each such solution.
(iv) Use MATLAB, and specifically your gs function, to do Problem 6.4.22.


Assignment #5 (due Tue. 5/22):

Section 6.2: 10, 26
Section 6.4: 2
