(b) a plane in R3 (c) all of R3 . v C w D .2; 3/ and v w D .6; 1/ will be the diagonals of the parallelogram with v and w as two sides going out from .0; 0/. This problem gives the diagonals v C w and v w of the parallelogram and asks for the sides: The opposite of Problem 2. In this example v D .3; 3/ and w D .2; 2/. 3v C w D .7; 5/ and c v C d w D .2c C d; c C 2d /. u C v D . 2; 3; 1/ and u C v C w D .0; 0; 0/ and 2u C 2v C w D . add ?rst answers/ D . 2; 3; 1/. The vectors u; v; w are in the same plane because a combination gives .0; 0; 0/. Stated another way: u D v w is in the plane of v and w. The components of every c v C d w add to zero. c D 3 and d D 9 give .3; 3; 6/. The nine combinations c.2; 1/ C d.0; 1/ with c D 0; 1; 2 and d D .0; 1; 2/ will lie on a lattice. If we took all whole numbers c and d , the lattice would lie over the whole plane. The other diagonal is v w (or else w v). Adding diagonals gives 2v (or 2w). The fourth corner can be .4; 4/ or .4; 0/ or . 2; 2/. Three possible parallelograms! i j D .1; 1; 0/ is in the base (x -y plane). i C j C k D .1; 1; 1/ is the opposite corner from .0; 0; 0/. Points in the cube have 0  x  1, 0  y  1, 0  z  1. 1 1 1 ; 2 ; 2 /. Four more corners .1; 1; 0/; .1; 0; 1/; .0; 1; 1/; .1; 1; 1/.

2:00 vector D 8:00 vector. 2:00 is 30? from horizontal D . 3=2; 1=2/. D .cos Moving the origin to 6:00 adds j D .0; 1/ to every vector. So the sum of twelve vectors changes from 0 to 12j D .0; 12/. 3 1 The point v C w is three-fourths of the way to v starting from w. The vector 4 4 1 1 1 1 v C w is halfway to u D v C w. The vector v C w is 2u (the far corner of the 4 4 2 2 parallelogram). All combinations with c C d D 1 are on the line that passes through v and w. The point V D v C 2w is on that line but it is beyond w. All vectors c v C c w are on the line passing through .0; 0/ and u D 1 vC 1 w. That 2 2 line continues out beyond v C w and back beyond .0; 0/. With c  0, half of this line is removed, leaving a ray that starts at .0; 0/. The combinations c v C d w with 0  c  1 and 0  d  1 ?ll the parallelogram with sides v and w. For example, if v D .1; 0/ and w D .0; 1/ then c v C d w ?lls the unit square. With c  0 and d  0 we get the in?nite “cone” or “wedge” between v and w. For example, if v D .1; 0/ and w D .0; 1/, then the cone is the whole quadrant x  0, y  0. Question: What if w D v? The cone opens to a half-space.

There are many proofs of G D .x1 x2    xn /1=n  A D .x1 C x2 C    C xn /=n. In calculus you are maximizing G on the plane x1 C x2 C    C xn D n.

The whole line 2 1 1 2 2 2 2 becomes :96  .:6/.:8/ C .:8/.:6/  2 .:6 C :8 / C 2 .:8 C :6 / D 1. True: :96 < 1. p The cosine of  is x= x 2 C y 2 , near side over hypotenuse. Then j cos  j2 is not greater than 1: x 2 =.x 2 C y 2 /  1. The vectors w D .x; y/ with .1; 2/  w D x C 2y D 5 lie on a line in the xy plane. p The shortest w on that line is .1; 2/. (The Schwarz inequality p kwk  v  w=kvk D 5 is an equality when cos  D 0 and w D .1; 2/ and kwk D 5.) The length kv wk is between 2 and 8 (triangle inequality when kvk D 5 and kwk D 3). The dot product v  w is between 15 and 15 by the Schwarz inequality. Three vectors in the plane could make angles greater than 90? with each other: for example .1; 0/; . 1; 4/; . 1; 4/. Four vectors could not do this (360? total angle). How many can do this in R3 or Rn ? Ben Harris and Greg Marks showed me that the answer is n C 1: The vectors from the center of a regular simplex in Rn to its n C 1 vertices all have negative dot products. If n C 2 vectors in Rn had negative dot products, project them onto the plane orthogonal to the last one. Now you have n C 1 vectors in Rn 1 with negative dot products. Keep going to 4 vectors in R2 : no way! For a speci?c example, pick v D p .1; 2; In this example p 3/ and then w D . 3; 1; 2/. ? cos  D v  w=kvkkwk D 7= 14 14 D 1=2 and  D 120 .

First there is equality in case x D y D z . Otherwise A is somewhere between the three positive numbers, say for example z < A < y . Use the known inequality g  a for the two positive numbers x and y C z A. Their 1 1 mean a D 2 .x C y C z A/ is 2 .3A A/ D same as A! So a  g says that 3 2 A  g A D x.y C z A/A.

3, elimination gives 0 D 0 in equation 2: in?nitely many solutions. If k D 0 a row exchange is needed: one solution. On the left side, 6x 4y is 2 times .3x 2y/. Therefore we need b2 D 2b1 on the right side. Then there will be in?nitely many solutions (two parallel lines become one single line). The equation y D 1 comes from elimination (subtract x C y D 5 from x C 2y D 6). Then x D 4 and 5x 4y D c D 16. 1 (a) Another solution is 2 .x C X; y C Y; z C Z/. (b) If 25 planes meet at two points, they meet along the whole line through those two points. Elimination leads to an upper triangular system; then comes back substitution. 2x C 3y C z D 8 xD2 y C 3z D 4 gives y D 1 If a zero is at the start of row 2 or 3, 8z D 8 z D 1 that avoids a row operation. 2x 3y D 3 2x 3y D3 2x 3y D 3 xD3 y C z D 1 and 4x 5y C z D 7 gives y C z D 1 and y D 1 2x y 3z D 5 5z D 0 zD0 2y C 3z D 2 Subtract 2  row 1 from row 2, subtract 1  row 1 from row 3, subtract 2  row 2 from row 3 Subtract 2 times row 1 from row 2 to reach .d 10/y z D 2. Equation (3) is y z D 3. If d D 10 exchange rows 2 and 3. If d D 11 the system becomes singular. The second pivot position will contain 2 b . If b D 2 we exchange with row 3. If b D 1 (singular case) the second equation is y z D 0. A solution is .1; 1; 1/. 0x C 0y C 2z D 4 Exchange 0x C 3y C 4z D 4 Example of x C 2y C 2z D 5 but then x C 2y C 2z D 5 (a) 2 exchanges (b) 0x C 3y C 4z D 6 break down 0x C 3y C 4z D 6 (exchange 1 and 2, then 2 and 3) (rows 1 and 3 are not consistent) If row 1 D row 2, then row 2 is zero after the ?rst step; exchange the zero row with row 3 and there is no third pivot. If column 2 D column 1, then column 2 has no pivot. Example x C 2y C 3z D 0, 4x C 8y C 12z D 0, 5x C 10y C 15z D 0 has 9 different coef?cients but rows 2 and 3 become 0 D 0: in?nitely many solutions. Row 2 becomes 3y 4z D 5, then row 3 becomes .q C 4/z D t 5. If q D 4 the system is singular—no third pivot. Then if t D 5 the third equation is 0 D 0. Choosing z D 1 the equation 3y 4z D 5 gives y D 3 and equation 1 gives x D 9. Singular if row 3 is a combination of rows 1 and 2. From the end view, the three planes form a triangle. This happens if rows 1 C 2 D row 3 on the left side but not the right side: x C y C z D 0, x 2y z D 1, 2x y D 4. No parallel planes but still no solution.

With row exchanges in MATLAB’s lu code, the averages :75 and :50 and :365 are much more stable (and should be predictable, also for randn with normal instead of uniform probability distribution).

Multiply BC D (n by p)(p by q ) needs npq and then A.BC / needs mnq .

(a) If m; n; p; q are 2; 4; 7; 10 we compare .2/.4/.7/ C .2/.7/.10/ D 196 with the larger number .2/.4/.10/ C .4/.7/.10/ D 360. So AB ?rst is better, so that we multiply that 7 by 10 matrix by as few rows as possible. (b) If u; v; w are N by 1, then .uT v/wT needs 2N multiplications but uT .vwT / needs N 2 to ?nd vwT and N 2 more to multiply by the row vector uT . Apologies to use the transpose symbol so early. (c) We are comparing mnp C mpq with mnq C npq . Divide all terms by mnpq : Now we are comparing q 1 Cn 1 with p 1 Cm 1 . This yields a simple important rule. If matrices A and B are multiplying v for AB v, don’t multiply the matrices ?rst.
37 The proof of .AB/c D A.B c / used the column rule for matrix multiplication—this

rule is clearly linear, column by column.

Even for nonlinear transformations, A.B.c // would be the “composition” of A with B (applying B then A). This composition A ? B is just AB for matrices.

One of many uses for the associative law: The left-inverse B = right-inverse C from B D B.AC / D .BA/C D C .

25 The splu code will not end when abs.A.k; k// < tol line 4 of the slu code on page 100.

21 Elimination on a symmetric 3 by 3 matrix leaves a symmetric lower right 2 by 2 matrix.

26 One way to decide even vs. odd is to count all pairs that P has in the wrong order. Then

Instead splu looks for a nonzero entry below the diagonal in the current column k , and executes a row exchange. The 4 lines to exchange row k with row r are at the end of Section 2.7 (page 113). To ?nd that nonzero entry A.r; k/, follow abs.A.k; k// < tol by locating the ?rst nonzero (or the largest A.r; k/ out of r D k C 1; : : : ; n).

P is even or odd when that count is even or odd. Hard step: Show that an exchange always switches that count! Then 3 or 5 exchanges will leave that count odd. # # " " 1 0 0 1 T 3 1 puts 0 in the 2; 1 entry of E21 A.

Solutions to Exercises
(a) zero when x D 0 (b) one when x D .1; 1; 1; 1/ (c) three when x D .1; 1; 1; 1/ because all rearrangements of this x are perpendicular to .1; 1; 1; 1/ (d) four when the x ’s are not equal and don’t add to zero. No x gives dim S D 2. I owe this nice problem to Mike Artin—the answers are the same in higher dimensions: 0; 1; n 1; n. The problem is to show that the u’s, v’s, w’s together are independent. We know the u’s and v’s together are a basis for V , and the u’s and w’s together are a basis for W . Suppose a combination of u’s, v’s, w’s gives 0. To be proved: All coef?cients D zero. Key idea: In that combination giving 0, the part x from the u’s and v’s is in V . So the part from the w’s is x . This part is now in V and also in W . But if x is in V \ W it is a combination of u’s only. Now the combination uses only u’s and v’s (independent in V !) so all coef?cients of u’s and v’s must be zero. Then x D 0 and the coef?cients of the w’s are also zero. The inputs to an m by n matrix ?ll Rn . The outputs (column space!) have dimension r . The nullspace has n r special solutions. The formula becomes r C .n r/ D n. If the left side of dim.V/ C dim.W/ D dim.V \ W/ C dim.V C W/ is greater than n, then dim.V \ W/ must be greater than zero. So V \ W contains nonzero vectors. If A2 D zero matrix, this says that each column of A is in the nullspace of A. If the column space has dimension r , the nullspace has dimension 10 r , and we must have r  10 r and r  5.

Neil Sloane’s wonderful On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (research.att.com/ njas) includes the solution for small n (and more references) when the problem is changed to 0; 1 matrices. That sequence A003432 starts from n D 0 with 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 9. Then the 1; 1 maximum for size n is 2n 1 times the 0; 1 maximum for size n 1 (so .32/.5/ D 160 for n D 6 in sequence A003433). To reduce the 1; 1 problem from 6 by 6 to the 0; 1 problem for 5 by 5, multiply the six rows by ˙1 to put C1 in column 1. Then subtract row 1 from rows 2 to 6 to get a 5 by 5 submatrix S of 2; 0 and divide S by 2.

We must choose 1’s from column 2 then column 1, column 4 then column 3,and so on. Therefore n must be even to have det An ¤ 0. The number of row exchanges is n=2 so Cn D . 1/n=2 . The 1; 1 cofactor of the n by n matrix is En 1 . The 1; 2 cofactor has a single 1 in its ?rst column, with cofactor En 2 : sign gives En 2 . So En D En 1 En 2 . Then E1 to E6 is 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1 and this cycle of six will repeat: E100 D E4 D 1. The 1; 1 cofactor of the n by n matrix is Fn 1 . The 1; 2 cofactor has a 1 in column 1, with cofactor Fn 2 .

Following the solution to Problem 30 with 3’s instead of 2’s con?rms S4 D 81 C 1 9 9 9 D 55. Problem 33 directly proves Sn D F2nC2 . Changing 3 to 2 in the corner reduces the determinant F2nC2 by 1 times the cofactor of that corner entry. This cofactor is the determinant of Sn 1 (one size smaller) which is F2n . Therefore changing 3 to 2 changes the determinant to F2nC2 F2n which is F2nC1 .

For n D 5, Jacobi multiplied each 2 by 2 determinant from rows 1-2 (with columns a < b ) times a 3 by 3 determinant from rows 3-5 (using the remaining columns c < d < e ). The key question is C or sign (as for cofactors). The product is given a C sign when a, b , c , d , e is an even permutation of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. This gives the correct determinant C1 for that permutation matrix.

All vectors in the column space (combinations of those columns x i ) are eigenvectors with  D 1. Always the nullspace has  D 0 (A might have dependent columns, so there could be less than n eigenvectors with  D 1). Dimensions of those spaces add to n by the Fundamental Theorem, so A is diagonalizable (n independent eigenvectors altogether). There may not be r independent eigenvectors in the column space.

Orthogonal matrices, exponentials e At , matrices with det D 1 are groups. Examples of subgroups are orthogonal matrices with det D 1, exponentials e An for integer n. Another subgroup: lower triangular elimination matrices E with diagonal 1’s. A product AB of symmetric positive de?nite matrices comes into many applications. The “generalized” eigenvalue problem K x D M x has AB D M 1 K . (often we use eig.K; M / without actually inverting M .) All eigenvalues  are positive: AB x D x gives .B x /T AB x D .B x /T x: Then  D x T B T AB x =x T B x > 0:

Since C is assumed positive de?nite, this energy can drop to zero only when Ax D 0. Sine A is assumed to have independent columns, Ax D 0 only happens when x D 0. Thus AT CA has positive energy and is positive de?nite. My textbooks Computational Science and Engineering and Introduction to Applied Mathematics start with many examples of AT CA in a wide range of applications. I believe this is a unifying concept from linear algebra.
