Problems and solutions 1. 1.They are baking potatoes. Definition: If $Ax = b$ is a linear system, then every vector $x$ which satisfies the system is said to be a Solution Vector of the linear system. 1 a & 1 b \\ r s a & r s b \\ 4. The vector \(\begin{pmatrix}0\\0\end{pmatrix}\) is not in this set. Again, the properties of addition and scalar multiplication of functions show that this is a vector space. Some examples of vector spaces are: (1) M m;n, the set of all m nmatrices, with component-wise addition and scalar multiplication. \\\\ = c'+c & d'+d \end{bmatrix} r \left( s \begin{bmatrix} The following are examples of vector spaces: Example 2 Proove that the set of all 2 by 2 matrices associated with the matrix addition and the scalar multiplication of matrices is a vector space.Solution to Example 2 Let \( V\) be the set of all 2 by 2 matrices.1) Addition of matrices gives\( \begin{bmatrix} Examples 1.Any vector space has two improper subspaces: f0gand the vector space itself. a' & b' \\ Therefore (x;y;z) 2span(S). 0 0 0 0 S, so S is not a subspace of 3. One can always choose such a set for every denumerably or non-denumerably infinite-dimensional vector space. or in words, all ordered pairs of elements from \(V\) and \(W\). A scalar is a rank-0 tensor, a vector is rank-1, a vector space is rank-2, and beyond this tensors are referred to only by their rank and are considered high-rank tensors. (r + s ) c & (r + s ) d The null space is defined to be the solution set of Ax = 0, so this is a good example of a kind of subspace that we can define without any spanning set in mind.

Some examples of in–nite-dimensional vector spaces include F (1 ;1), C (1 ;1), Cm (1 ;1). c' & d' a'' & b'' \\ By taking combinations of these two vectors we can form the plane \(\{ c_{1} f+ c_{2} g | c_{1},c_{2} \in \Re\}\) inside of \(\Re^{\Re}\). From these examples we can also conclude that every vector space has a basis. c & d \end{bmatrix} \end{bmatrix} \right) + r \left(\begin{bmatrix} The sum of any two solutions is a solution, for example, \[ \) this equation involves sums of 2 by 2 matrices and multiplications by real numbers, \( 2 P(x) +3(2 x - 3) = -2(x^2 - 2x - 5) \) this equation involves sums of polynommials and multiplications by real numbers. The operation + (vector addition) must satisfy the following conditions: Closure: If u and v are any vectors in V, then the sum u + v belongs to V. (1) Commutative law: For all vectors u and v in V, u + v = v + u Moreover, a vector space can have many different bases. 0 & 0 Example 311 We have seen, and will see more examples of –nite-dimensional vector spaces. ‘Real’ here refers to the fact that the scalars are real numbers. For example, one could consider the vector space of polynomials in \(x\) with degree at most \(2\) over the real numbers, which will be denoted by \(P_2\) from now on. \)8) Distributivity of sums of matrices:\( The set of all vectors of dimension \( n \) written as \( \mathbb{R}^n \) associated with the addition and scalar multiplication as defined for 3-d and 2-d vectors for example. A hyperplane which does not contain the origin cannot be a vector space because it fails condition (+iv). Because we can not write a list infinitely long (without infinite time and ink), one can not define an element of this space explicitly; definitions that are implicit, as above, or algebraic as in \(f(n)=n^{3}\) (for all \(n \in \mathbb{N}\)) suffice. A vector space consists of a set of V ( elements of V are called vectors), a field F ( elements of F are scalars) and the two operations 1. This is used in physics to describe forces or velocities. the solution space is a vector space ˇRn. Introduction to Vectors \(P:=\left \{ \begin{pmatrix}a\\b\end{pmatrix} \Big| \,a,b \geq 0 \right\}\) is not a vector space because the set fails (\(\cdot\)i) since \(\begin{pmatrix}1\\1\end{pmatrix}\in P\) but \(-2\begin{pmatrix}1\\1\end{pmatrix} =\begin{pmatrix}-2\\-2\end{pmatrix} \notin P\). r(a+a') & r(b+b') \\ This example is called a \(\textit{subspace}\) because it gives a vector space inside another vector space. Vector spaces as abstract algebraic entities were first defined by the Italian mathematician Giuseppe Peano in 1888. Example 55: Solution set to a homogeneous linear equation, \[ M = \begin{pmatrix} 3.1. • Vector: parameters possessing magnitude and direction which add according to the parallelogram law. You are familiar with algebraic definitions like \(f(x)=e^{x^{2}-x+5}\). Indeed, because it is determined by the linear map given by the matrix \(M\), it is called \(\ker M\), or in words, the \(\textit{kernel}\) of \(M\), for this see chapter 16. Example of Vector Spaces. A list of the major formulas used in vector computations are included. Deﬁnition 1.1.1. Example: (7, 8, -7, ½) = (14, 16, -14, 1) Difference of two n-tuples. \begin{bmatrix} 0 0 0 0 S, so S is not a subspace of 3. \end{bmatrix} A real vector space or linear space over R is a set V, together -1 & 10 \end{bmatrix} The set R of real numbers R is a vector space over R. 2.

The other axioms should also be checked. a+a' & b+b' \\ a & b \\ \end{bmatrix} Then for example the function \(f(n)=n^{3}\) would look like this: \[f=\begin{pmatrix}1\\ 8\\ 27\\ \vdots\\ n^{3}\\ \vdots\end{pmatrix}.\]. This is a vector space; some examples of vectors in it are 4ex − 31e2x, πe2x − 4ex and 1 2e2x. \end{bmatrix} \\\\ = This is not a vector space because the green vectors in the space are not closed under multiplication by a scalar. Recall the concept of a subset, B, of a given set, A. = \end{bmatrix} + The column space and the null space of a matrix are both subspaces, so they are both spans. In turn, P 2 is a subspace of P. 4. \)6) Zero vector\( \begin{bmatrix} c & d c & d Theorem 1: Let V be a vector space, u a vector in V and c a scalar then: 1) 0u = 0 2) c0 = 0 3) (-1)u = -u 4) If cu = 0, then c = 0 or u = 0. r \left ( a'' & b'' \\ Thinking this way, \(\Re^\mathbb{N}\) is the space of all infinite sequences. \\\\ = \). c & d a'+a & b'+b \\ 3.The set of polynomials in P 2 with no linear term forms a subspace of P 2. Let F be a field and n a natural number.Then Fn forms a vector space under tuple additionand scalar multplication where scalars are elements of F. Fn is probably the most common vector space studied,especially when F=R and n≤3.For example, R2 is often depicted by a 2-dimensional planeand R3by a 3-dimensional space. c+(-c) & d+(-d) \begin{bmatrix} 4\left[ 5\begin{pmatrix}-1\\1\\0\end{pmatrix} - 3 \begin{pmatrix}-1\\0\\1\end{pmatrix} \right] All elements in B are elements in A.

Example 6Show that the set of integers associated with addition and multiplication by a real number IS NOT a vector spaceSolution to Example 6The multiplication of an integer by a real number may not be an integer.Example: Let \( x = - 2 \)If you multiply \( x \) by the real number \( \sqrt 3 \) the result is NOT an integer. Some examples of in–nite-dimensional vector spaces include F (1 ;1), C (1 ;1), Cm (1 ;1). For example, the nowhere continuous function, \[f(x) = \left\{\begin{matrix}1,~~ x\in \mathbb{Q}\\ 0,~~ x\notin \mathbb{Q}\end{matrix}\right.\]. Also, find a basis of your vector space.

Example 3Show that the set of all real functions continuous on \( (-\infty,\infty) \) associated with the addition of functions and the multiplication of matrices by a scalar form a vector space.Solution to Example 3From calculus, we know if \( \textbf{f} \) and \( \textbf{g} \) are real continuous functions on \( (-\infty,\infty) \) and \( r \) is a real number then\( (\textbf{f} + \textbf{g})(x) = \textbf{f}(x) + \textbf{g}(x) \) is also continuous on \( (-\infty,\infty) \)and\( r \textbf{f}(x) \) is also continuous on \( (-\infty,\infty) \)Hence the set of functions continuous on \( (-\infty,\infty) \) is closed under addition and scalar multiplication (the first two conditions above).The remaining 8 rules are automatically satisfied since the functions are real functions. The zero vector in Fn is given by the n-tuple ofall 0's. Scalars are usually considered to be real numbers.

Examples of Vector Spaces A wide variety of vector spaces are possible under the above deﬁnition as illus-trated by the following examples. A vector space or a linear space is a group of objects called vectors, added collectively and multiplied (“scaled”) by numbers, called scalars. One can find many interesting vector spaces, such as the following: \[ \mathbb{R}^\mathbb{N} = \{f \mid f \colon \mathbb{N} \rightarrow \Re \} \]. The addition is just addition of functions: \((f_{1} + f_{2})(n) = f_{1}(n) + f_{2}(n)\). Remark 312 If V is just the vector space consisting of f0g, then we say that dim(V) = 0. \right) "* ( 2 ˇ ˝ 2 ˇˆ ˇ ˆ ˆ ˜ * ! c & d \end{bmatrix} \right) a & b \\ \end{bmatrix} + Instead we just write \" π \".) It is also possible to build new vector spaces from old ones using the product of sets. Remark. \\\\ = We can think of these functions as infinitely large ordered lists of numbers: \(f(1)=1^{3}=1\) is the first component, \(f(2)=2^{3}=8\) is the second, and so on. \begin{bmatrix} The idea of a vector space developed from the notion of ordinary two- and three-dimensional spaces as collections of vectors {u, v, w, …} with an associated field of real numbers {a, b, c, …}.Vector spaces as abstract algebraic entities were first defined by the Italian mathematician Giuseppe Peano in 1888. The subset H ∪ K is thus not a subspace of 2. For example, the solution space for the above equation [clarification needed] is generated by e −x and xe −x. + \left [ 7\begin{pmatrix}-1\\1\\0\end{pmatrix} + 5 \begin{pmatrix}-1\\0\\1\end{pmatrix} \right] Let we have two composition, one is ‘+’ between two numbers of V and another is ‘.’ Watch the recordings here on Youtube! Example 4Show that the set of all real polynomials with a degree \( n \le 3 \) associated with the addition of polynomials and the multiplication of polynomials by a scalar form a vector space.Solution to Example 4The addition of two polynomials of degree less than or equal to 3 is a polynomial of degree lass than or equal to 3.The multiplication, of a polynomial of degree less than or equal to 3, by a real number results in a polynomial of degree less than or equal to 3Hence the set of polynomials of degree less than or equal to 3 is closed under addition and scalar multiplication (the first two conditions above).The remaining 8 rules are automatically satisfied since the polynomials are real. \\\\ = \begin{bmatrix} \begin{bmatrix} c & d (+i) (Additive Closure) \((f_{1} + f_{2})(n)=f_{1}(n) +f_{2}(n)\) is indeed a function \(\mathbb{N} \rightarrow \Re\), since the sum of two real numbers is a real number. a' & b' \\ c'' & d'' a & b \\ Define and give examples of scalar and vector quantities. \(\Re^{ \{*, \star, \# \}} = \{ f : \{*, \star, \# \} \to \Re \}\).

In such a vector space, all vectors can be written in the form \(ax^2 + bx + c\) where \(a,b,c\in \mathbb{R}\). It is obvious that if the set of real numbers in equation (1), the set of 2-d vectors used in equation (2), the set of the 2 by 2 matrices used in equation (3) and the set of polynomial used in equation (4) obey some common laws of addition and multiplication by real numbers, we may be (b) Let S a 1 0 3 a . \right) - c & - d Example 52: The space of functions of one real variable, \[ \mathbb{R}^\mathbb{R} = \{f \mid f \colon \Re \to \Re \} \], The addition is point-wise $$(f+g)(x)=f(x)+g(x)\, ,$$ as is scalar multiplication. 0 & 0 4.
