Exercise 3.III.1. Using the standard bases, find (a) the matrix representing this map; (b) a general formula for h(v). 1. Assume that h: R 2 → R 3 is determined by this action. 2. Let d/dx: P 3 → P 3 be the derivative transformation. (a) Represent d/dx with respect to B, B where B = 1, x, x 2, x 3 . (b) Represent d/dx with respect to B, D where D = 1, 2x, 3x 2, 4x 3 .
3.III.2. Any Matrix Represents a Linear Map Theorem 2.1: Every matrix represents a homomorphism between vector spaces, of appropriate dimensions, with respect to any pair of bases. Proof by construction: Given an m n matrix H = ( h i j ), one can construct a homomorphism h: V n → W m byv h(v ) with h(v B ) D = H · v B where B and D are any bases for V and W, resp. v B is an n 1 column vector representing v V w.r.t. B.
Example 2.2: Which map the matrix represents depends on which bases are used. Let Then h 1 : R 2 → R 2 as represented by H w.r.t. B 1 and D 1 gives While h 2 : R 2 → R 2 as represented by H w.r.t. B 2 and D 2 gives Convention: An m n matrix with no spaces or bases specified will be assumed to represent h: V n → W m w.r.t. the standard bases. In which case, column space of H = R (h).
Theorem 2.3: rank H = rank h Proof: (See Hefferon, p.207.) For each set of bases for h: V n → W m, Isomorphism: W m → R m. ∴ dim columnSpace = dim rangeSpace Example 2.4: Any map represented by must be of type h: V 3 → W 4 rank H = 2 →dim R (h) = 2 Corollary 2.5: Let h be a linear map represented by an m n matrix H. Then h is onto rank H = m h is 1-1 rank H = n
Corollary 2.6: A square matrix represents nonsingular maps iff it is a nonsingular matrix. A matrix represents an isomorphism iff it is square and nonsingular. Example 2.7: Any map from R 2 to P 1 represented w.r.t. any pair of bases by is nonsingular because rank H = 2. Example 2.8: Any map represented by is singular because H is singular.
