By Gilbert Strang

Well known professor and writer Gilbert Strang demonstrates that linear algebra is an interesting topic by way of displaying either its good looks and price. whereas the maths is there, the hassle isn't really all targeting proofs. Strang's emphasis is on figuring out. He explains thoughts, instead of deduces.

This publication is written in an off-the-cuff and private sort and teaches actual arithmetic. The gears switch in bankruptcy 2 as scholars succeed in the advent of vector areas. through the booklet, the idea is inspired and bolstered by way of real purposes, permitting natural mathematicians to educate utilized mathematics.

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.

C) If AB and BA are defined then AB and BA are square. (d) If AB = B then A = I. 43. If A is m by n, how many separate multiplications are involved when (a) A multiplies a vector x with n components? (b) A multiplies an n by p matrix B? Then AB is m by p. (c) A multiplies itself to produce A2 ? Here m = n. 44. To prove that (AB)C = A(BC), use the column vectors b1 , . . , bn of B. First suppose that C has only one column c with entries c1 , . . , cn : AB has columns Ab1 , . . , Abn , and Bc has one column c1 b1 + · · · + cn bn .

26. Solve by elimination the system of two equations x − y = 0 3x + 6y = 18. Draw a graph representing each equation as a straight line in the x-y plane; the lines intersect at the solution. 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.
