Scalar product in Rn

Def: Let and be vectors in either R2 or R3.
The distance between and is defined to be the number

Theorem 5.1.1 If and are two nonzero vectors in either R2 or
R3 and is the angle between them , then

Proof: By the law of cosines,

Corollary 5.1.2(Cauchy-Schwarz Inequality)
If and are vectors in either R2 or R3, then With equality holding if and only if one of the vectors is or one vector is a multiple of the other.

Note: If is the angle between , then
Thus

Def: The vectors and in R2(or R3)are said to
be orthogonal if

Scalar and Vector Projections

Example: Find the point
on the line that is closest to the point (1,4) Sol: Note that the vector is on the line Thus the desired point is

Example: Find the equation of the plane
passing through and normal to Sol:

Application 1: Information Retrieval Revisited
Table 1 Frequency of Key words Modules Key Words M1 M2 M3 M4 M5 M6 M7 M8 determines 6 3 1 eignvalues 5 2 linear 4 matrices numerical orthogonality spaces systems transformations vector

Application I: Information Retrieval Revisited
A is the matrix corresponding to Table I, then the columns of the database matrix Q are determined by setting To do a search for the key words orthogonality, spaces, vector, we form a unit search vector whose entries are all zero except for the three rows(be put in each of the rows) corresponding to the search rows.

Application I: Information Retrieval Revisited
Since is the entry of that is closest to 1,this indicates that the direction of the search vector is closest to the direction of and hence that Module 5 is the one that best matches our search criteria.

Application 2: Correlation And Covariance Matrices
Table 2 Math Scores Fall 1996 Scores Student Assignment Exams Final S1 198 200 196 S2 160 165 S3 158 133 S4 150 91 S5 175 182 151 S6 134 135 101 S7 152 136 80 Average 161 163 131

Application 2: Correlation And Covariance Matrices
The column vectors of X represent the deviations from the mean for each of the three sets of scores. The three sets of translated data specified by the column vectors of X all have mean 0 and all sum to 0. A cosine value near 1 indicates that the two sets of scores are highly correlated. Scale to make them unit vectors

Application 2: Correlation And Covariance Matrices
The matrix C is referred to as a correlation matrix. The three sets of scores in our example are all positively correlated since the correlation coefficients are all positive. A negative coefficient would indicate that two data sets were negatively correlated. A coefficient of 0 would indicate that they were uncorrelated.

5-2 Orthogonal Subspaces
Def: Two subspaces X and Y of are said to be orthogonal if = 0 for every and If X and Y are orthogonal, we write

Def: Let Y be a subspace of . The set of all vectors in
that are orthogonal to every vector in Y will be denoted Thus = { for every } The set is called the orthogonal complement of Y

Remarks: If X and Y are orthogonal subspaces of , then If Y is a subspace of , then is also a subspace of
