By Paul R. Halmos

Can one research linear algebra completely by way of fixing difficulties? Paul Halmos thinks so, and you may too when you learn this publication. The Linear Algebra challenge publication is a perfect textual content for a path in linear algebra. It takes the scholar step-by-step from the fundamental axioms of a box during the idea of vector areas, directly to complicated innovations resembling internal product areas and normality. All of this happens in terms of a chain of 164 Read more...

Vectors common to different bases 38 Problem 38. (a) Do there exist two bases in C 4 such that the only vectors common to them are (0, 0, 1, 1) and (1, 1, 0, 0)? (b) Do there exist two bases in C 4 that have no vectors in common so that one of them contains the vectors (1, 0, 0, 0) and (1, 1, 0, 0) and the other one contains the vectors (1, 1, 1, 0) and (1, 1, 1, 1)? 39. Bases in C3 39 Problem 39. (a) Under what conditions on the scalar x do the vectors (1, 1, 1) and (1, x, x2) form a basis of C 3 ?

Indeed, if H = x+M and K = y + M, then every element of H + K belongs to the coset (x + y) + M (note that M + M = M), and, conversely, every element of (x + y) + M is in H + K. ) In other words, H + K = (x + y) + M, so that H + K is a coset, as asserted. It is easy to verify that coset addition is commutative and associative. The coset M (that is, 0 + M) is such that K+M= K for every coset K, and, moreover, M is the only coset with this property. ) If K is a coset, then the set consisting of all the vectors −u, with u in K, is itself a coset, which is denoted by −K.

The span of a set (finite or infinite) consists, by definition, of the set of all linear combinations of elements of the set. There is a way of saying the same thing that uses exactly one more word and that word seems to come naturally to some people: they say that the span of a set consists of the set of all finite linear combinations of elements of the set. The added word \finite" is harmless, in the sense that it doesn't change the meaning of the sentence (no other kind of linear combination has been defined), but at the same time it might be harmful because it suggests that \infinite linear combinations" could have been considered but were deliberately excluded.
