By Gilbert Strang

Well known professor and writer Gilbert Strang demonstrates that linear algebra is an interesting topic by means of exhibiting either its attractiveness and price. whereas the math is there, the hassle isn't really all focused on proofs. Strang's emphasis is on figuring out. He explains options, instead of deduces.

This ebook is written in an off-the-cuff and private sort and teaches genuine arithmetic. The gears switch in bankruptcy 2 as scholars achieve the creation of vector areas. during the publication, the speculation is stimulated and strengthened through real functions, permitting natural mathematicians to educate utilized mathematics.

Which of the following matrices are guaranteed to equal (A + B)2 ? A2 + 2AB + B2 , A(A + B) + B(A + B), (A + B)(B + A), A2 + AB + BA + B2 . 18. If A and B are n by n matrices with all entries equal to 1, find (AB)i j . Summation notation turns the product AB, and the law (AB)C = A(BC), into (AB)i j = ∑ aik bk j k ∑ ∑ aik bk j j k c jl = ∑ aik k ∑ bk j c jl . j Compute both sides if C is also n by n, with every c jl = 2. 19. A fourth way to multiply matrices is columns of A times rows of B: AB = (column 1)(row 1) + · · · + (column n)(row n) = sum of simple matrices.

L is lower triangular, with 1s on the diagonal. The multipliers i j (taken from elimination) are below the diagonal. U is the upper triangular matrix which appears after forward elimination, The diagonal entries of U are the pivots. Example 1. A= 1 2 1 2 1 0 goes to U = with L = . Then LU = A. 3 8 0 2 3 1 Example 2. (which needs a row exchange) A= 0 2 3 4 cannot be factored into A = LU. Example 3. (with all pivots and multipliers equal to 1) 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 A = 1 2 2 = 1 1 0 0 1 1 = LU.

Also, add one more line—the graph of the new second equation which arises after elimination. 27. Find three values of a for which elimination breaks down, temporarily or permanently, in au + u = 1 4u + av = 2. Breakdown at the first step can be fixed by exchanging rows—but not breakdown at the last step. 28. True or false: (a) If the third equation starts with a zero coefficient (it begins with 0u) then no multiple of equation 1 will be subtracted from equation 3. 4 Matrix Notation and Matrix Multiplication 21 (b) If the third equation has zero as its second coefficient (it contains 0v) then no multiple of equation 2 will be subtracted from equation 3.
