Definition (Vector Space)
Let V be an arbitrary nonempty set of objects on which two operations are
defined: addition, and multiplication by scalars.
If the following axioms are satisfied by all objects u, v, w in V and all scalars
k and m, then we call V a vector space and we call the objects in V vectors
1. If u and v are objects in V, then u + v is in V.
2. u + v = v + u
3. u + (v + w) = (u + v) + w
4. There is an object 0 in V, called a zero vector for V, such that 0 + u= u + 0 = u
for all u in V.
5. For each u in V, there is an object -u in V, called a negative of u, such that
u + (-u) = (-u) + u = 0.
6. If k is any scalar and u is any object in V, then ku is in V.
7. k (u + v) = ku + kv
8. (k + m) u = ku + mu
9. k (mu) = (km) (u)
10. 1u = u
To Show that a Set with Two Operations is a Vector Space
1.
Identify the set V of objects that will become vectors.
2.
Identify the addition and scalar multiplication operations on V.
3.
Verify Axioms 1(closure under addition) and 6 (closure under
scalar multiplication) ;
that is, adding two vectors in V produces a vector in V, and
multiplying a vector in V by a scalar also produces a vector in V.
4. Confirm that Axioms 2,3,4,5,7,8,9 and 10 hold.
Remarks
• Depending on the application, scalars may be real numbers or complex
numbers.
•Vector spaces in which the scalars are complex numbers are called complex
vector spaces, and those in which the scalars must be real are called real vector
spaces.
• The definition of a vector space specifies neither the nature of the vectors nor
the operations.
•Any kind of object can be a vector, and the operations of addition and scalar
multiplication may not have any relationship or similarity to the standard vector
operations on
.
• The only requirement is that the ten vector space axioms be satisfied.
The Zero Vector Space
Let V consist of a single object, which we denote by 0, and define
0 + 0 = 0 and k 0 = 0 for all scalars k.
It’s easy to check that all the vector space axioms are satisfied.
We called this the zero vector space.
Example ( R n Is a Vector Space)
The set V = R n with the standard operations of addition and scalar multiplication
is a vector space.
(Axioms 1 and 6 follow from the definitions of the
standard operations on R n ; the remaining axioms follow from Theorem 4.1.1.)
The three most important special cases of R n are R (the real numbers), R 2
(the vectors in the plane), and R 3 (the vectors in 3-space).
Example (2×2 Matrices)
Show that the set V of all 2×2 matrices with real entries is a vector space if
multiplication is defined to be matrix scalar multiplication.
Solution:
Example: Given the set of all triples of real numbers ( x, y, z ) with the operations
( x, y, z )  ( x ', y ', z ')  ( x  x ', y  y ', z  z ') and
k ( x, y, z )  (kx, y, z )
Determine if it’s a vector space under the given operation.
Solution:
Example.
Let V = R2 and define addition and scalar multiplication operations as follows:
If u = (u1, u2) and v = (v1, v2), then define
u + v = (u1 + v1, u2 + v2)
and if k is any real number, then define
k u = (k u1, 0)
Decide if V is a vector space with the stated operations
Theorem 5.1.1
Let V be a vector space, u be a vector in V, and k a scalar; then:
(a) 0 u = 0
(b) k 0 = 0
(c) (-1) u = -u
(d) If k u = 0 , then k = 0 or u = 0.
4.2 Subspaces
Definition
A subset W of a vector space V is called a subspace of V if W is itself a
vector space under the addition and scalar multiplication defined on V.
Theorem 5.2.1
If W is a set of one or more vectors from a vector space V, then W is a
subspace of V if and only if the following conditions hold:
a) If u and v are vectors in W, then u + v is in W.
b) If k is any scalar and u is any vector in W , then ku is in W.
Remark
Theorem 5.2.1 states that W is a subspace of V if and only if W is a closed under
addition (condition (a)) and closed under scalar multiplication (condition (b)).
Example
Decide if all vectors of the form (a, 0, 0) is a subspace of R3.
Example (Not a Subspace)
Let W be the set of all points (x, y) in R2 such that x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0. These are the
points in the first quadrant. Decide if the set W is a subspace of R2 .
Subspaces of Mnn
The set of n×n diagonal matrices forms subspaces of Mnn, why?
The set of n×n matrices with integer entries is NOT a subspace of the vector space
Mnn of n×n matrices. Why?
Linear Combination
Definition in 3.1
A vector w is a linear combination of the vectors v1, v2,…, vr if it can be
expressed in the form
w = k1v1 + k2v2 + · · · + kr vr
where k1, k2, …, kr are scalars.
Example: Decide if vectors in R3 are linear combinations of i, j, and k
Example
Consider the vectors u = (1, 2, -1) and v = (6, 4, 2) in R3. Show that w = (9, 2,
7) is a linear combination of u and v and that w′ = (4, -1, 8) is not a linear
combination of u and v.
Solution.
Linear Combination and Spanning
Theorem 5.2.3
If v1, v2, …, vr are vectors in a vector space V, then:
(a) The set W of all linear combinations of v1, v2, …, vr is a subspace of V.
(b) W is the smallest subspace of V that contain v1, v2, …, vr in the sense that
every other subspace of V that contain v1, v2, …, vr must contain W.
Example
If v1 and v2 are non-collinear vectors in R3 with their initial points at
the origin, then span{v1, v2}, which consists of all linear combinations
k1v1 + k2v2 is the plane determined by v1 and v2.
Similarly, if v is a nonzero vector in R2 and R3, then span {v}, which
is the set of all scalar multiples kv, is the line determined by v.
Example
Determine whether v1 = (1, 1, 2), v2 = (1, 0, 1), and v3 = (2, 1, 3)
span the vector space R3.
Solution
Solution Space
Solution Space of Homogeneous Systems
If Ax = b is a system of the linear equations, then each vector x that satisfies this
equation is called a solution vector of the system.
Theorem 5.2.2
If Ax = 0 is a homogeneous linear system of m equations in n unknowns, then
the set of solution vectors is a subspace of Rn.
Remark: Theorem 5.2.2 shows that the solution vectors of a homogeneous
linear system form a vector space, which we shall call the solution space of the
system.
Theorem 4.2.5
If S = {v1, v2, …, vr} and S′ = {w1, w2, …, wr} are two sets of vector in a vector
space V, then
span{v1, v2, …, vr} = span{w1, w2, …, wr}
if and only if
each vector in S is a linear combination of these in S′ and each vector in S′ is
a linear combination of these in S.
4. 3 Linearly Independence
Definition
If S = {v1, v2, …, vr} is a nonempty set of vector, then the vector equation
k1v1 + k2v2 + … + krvr= 0
has at least one solution, namely
k1 = 0, k2 = 0, … , kr = 0.
If this the only solution, then S is called a linearly independent set. If there are other
solutions, then S is called a linearly dependent set.
Examples
Given v1 = (2, -1, 0, 3), v2 = (1, 2, 5, -1), and v3 = (7, -1, 5, 8).Decide if the set of
vectors S = {v1, v2, v3} is linearly dependent.
Example
Let i = (1, 0, 0), j = (0, 1, 0), and k = (0, 0, 1) in R3. Determine it it’s a linear
independent set
Solution:.
Similarly decide if the vectors
e1 = (1, 0, 0, …,0), e2 = (0, 1, 0, …, 0), …, en = (0, 0, 0, …, 1)
form a linearly independent set in Rn.
Remark:
To check whether a set of vectors is linear independent or not, write down the
linear combination of the vectors and see if their coefficients all equal zero.
Example
Determine whether the vectors v1 = (1, -2, 3), v2 = (5, 6, -1), v3 = (3, 2, 1) form a
linearly dependent set or a linearly independent set.
Solution
Theorems
Theorem 4.3.1
A set with two or more vectors is:
(a) Linearly dependent if and only if at least one of the vectors in S is expressible as a
linear combination of the other vectors in S.
(b) Linearly independent if and only if no vector in S is expressible as a linear
combination of the other vectors in S.
Theorem 4.3.2
(a) A finite set of vectors that contains the zero vector is linearly dependent.
(b) A set with exactly one vector is linearly independent if and only if that vector is not
the zero vector.
(c) A set with exactly two vectors is linearly independent if and only if neither vector is
a scalar multiple of the other.
Theorem 4. 3.3
Let S = {v1, v2, …, vr} be a set of vectors in Rn. If r > n, then S is linearly dependent.
Geometric Interpretation of Linear Independence
In R2 and R3, a set of two vectors is linearly independent if and only if the vectors do
not lie on the same line when they are placed with their initial points at the origin.
In R3, a set of three vectors is linearly independent if and only if the vectors do not lie
in the same plane when they are placed with their initial points at the origin.
Section 4.4 Coordinates and Basis
Definition
If V is any vector space and S = {v1, v2, …,vn} is a set of vectors in V, then S is
called a basis for V if the following two conditions hold:
(a) S is linearly independent.
(b) S spans V.
Theorem 5.4.1 (Uniqueness of Basis Representation)
If S = {v1, v2, …,vn} is a basis for a vector space V, then every vector v in V can
be expressed in the form v = c1v1 + c2v2 + … + cnvn in exactly one way.
Coordinates Relative to a Basis
If S = {v1, v2, …, vn} is a basis for a vector space V, and
v = c1v1 + c2v2 + ··· + cnvn
is the expression for a vector v in terms of the basis S,
then the scalars c1, c2, …, cn, are called the coordinates of v relative to the
basis S.
The vector (c1, c2, …, cn) in Rn constructed from these coordinates is called the
coordinate vector of v relative to S; it is denoted by
(v)S = (c1, c2, …, cn)
Remark: Coordinate vectors depend not only on the basis S but also on the
order in which the basis vectors are written. A change in the order of the
basis vectors results in a corresponding change of order for the entries in
the coordinate vector.
Standard Basis for R3
Suppose that i = (1, 0, 0), j = (0, 1, 0), and k = (0, 0, 1), then S = {i, j, k} is a
linearly independent set in R3. This set also spans R3 since any vector v =
(a, b, c) in R3 can be written as
v = (a, b, c) = a(1, 0, 0) + b(0, 1, 0) + c(0, 0, 1) = ai + bj + ck
Thus, S is a basis for R3; it is called the standard basis for R3.
Looking at the coefficients of i, j, and k, it follows that the coordinates of v
relative to the standard basis are a, b, and c, so
(v)S = (a, b, c)
Comparing this result to v = (a, b, c), we have
v = (v)S
Standard Basis for Rn
If e1 = (1, 0, 0, …, 0), e2 = (0, 1, 0, …, 0), …, en = (0, 0, 0, …, 1), then
S = {e1, e2, …, en} is a linearly independent set in Rn. This set also spans Rn
since any vector v = (v1, v2, …, vn) in Rn can be written as
v = v1e1 + v2e2 + … + vnen
Thus, S is a basis for Rn; it is called the standard basis for Rn.
The coordinates of v = (v1, v2, …, vn) relative to the standard basis are v1 ,v2, …,
vn, thus
(v)S = (v1, v2, …, vn)
As the previous example, we have v = (v)s, so a vector v and its coordinate
vector relative to the standard basis for Rn are the same.
Example
Let v1 = (1, 2, 1), v2 = (2, 9, 0), and v3 = (3, 3, 4). Show that the set S = {v1, v2,
v3} is a basis for R3.
Solution:
Example
Let v1 = (1, 2, 1), v2 = (2, 9, 0), and v3 = (3, 3, 4), and S = {v1, v2, v3} be the
basis for R3 in the preceding example.
(a) Find the coordinate vector of v = (5, -1, 9) with respect to S.
(b) Find the vector v in R3 whose coordinate vector with respect to the basis
S is (v)s = (-1, 3, 2).
Solution (a)

Solution (b)
Finite-Dimensional
Definition
A nonzero vector space V is called finite-dimensional if it contains a finite set of
vector {v1, v2, …,vn} that forms a basis.
If no such set exists, V is called infinite-dimensional. In addition, we shall
regard the zero vector space to be finite-dimensional.
Example
The vector space Rn is finite-dimensional.
4.5 Dimension
Theorem 4. 5.2
Let V be a finite-dimensional vector space and {v1, v2, …,vn} any basis.
(a) If a set has more than n vector, then it is linearly dependent.
(b) If a set has fewer than n vector, then it does not span V.
Which can be used to prove the following theorem.
Theorem 4.5.1
All bases for a finite-dimensional vector space have the same number of
vectors.
Dimension
Definition
The dimension of a finite-dimensional vector space V, denoted by dim(V), is
defined to be the number of vectors in a basis for V.
In addition, we define the zero vector space to have dimension zero.
Example:
dim(Rn) = n [The standard basis has n vectors]
dim(Mmn) = mn [The standard basis has mn vectors]
Example
Determine a basis for and the dimension of the solution space of the
homogeneous system
2x1 + 2x2 – x3 + x5 = 0
-x1 - x2 + 2x3 – 3x4 + x5 = 0
x1 + x2 – 2x3 – x5 = 0
x3+ x4 + x5 = 0
Solution:
Some Fundamental Theorems
Theorem 4.5.3 (Plus/Minus Theorem)
Let S be a nonempty set of vectors in a vector space V.
(a) If S is a linearly independent set, and if v is a vector in V that is outside of
span(S), then the set S ∪ {v} that results by inserting v into S is still linearly
independent.
(b) If v is a vector in S that is expressible as a linear combination of other
vectors in S, and if S – {v} denotes the set obtained by removing v from S,
then S and S – {v} span the same space; that is, span(S) = span(S – {v})
Theorem 4.5.4
If V is an n-dimensional vector space, and if S is a set in V with exactly
n vectors, then S is a basis for V if either S spans V or S is linearly
independent.
Theorems
Theorem 4.5.5
Let S be a finite set of vectors in a finite-dimensional vector space V.
(a) If S spans V but is not a basis for V, then S can be reduced to a basis for V
by removing appropriate vectors from S.
(b) If S is a linearly independent set that is not already a basis for V, then S can
be enlarged to a basis for V by inserting appropriate vectors into S.
Theorem 4.5.6
If W is a subspace of a finite-dimensional vector space V, then
(a) W is finite-dimensional.
(b) dim(W) ≤ dim(V);
(c) W = V if and only if dim(W) = dim(V).

4.9 Transformations from R n to R m
Functions from R n to R
A function is a rule f that associates with each element in a set A one and only
one element in a set B.
If f associates the element b with the element a, then we write b = f(a) and say
that b is the image of a under f or that f(a) is the value of f at a.
The set A is called the domain of f and the set B is called the codomain of f.
The subset of B consisting of all possible values for f as a varies over A is
called the range of f.
Function from R n to R m
Here, we will be concerned exclusively with transformations from Rn to Rm.
Suppose f1, f2, …, fm are real-valued functions of n real variables, say
w1 = f1(x1,x2,…,xn)
w2 = f2(x1,x2,…,xn)
…
wm = fm(x1,x2,…,xn)
These m equations assign a unique point (w1,w2,…,wm) in Rm to each point
(x1,x2,…,xn) in Rn and thus define a transformation from Rn to Rm. If we
denote this transformation by T: Rn → Rm, then
T (x1,x2,…,xn) = (w1,w2,…,wm)
Example: The equations
w1  x1  x2
w2  3 x1 x2
w3  x12  x22
Defines a transformation T : R 2  R3 .
With this transformation, the image of the point (x1, x2) is
T ( x1, x2 )  ?
Thus, for example, T(1, -2)=?
Linear Transformations from

w2  4 x1  x2  2 x3  x4
w3  5 x1  x2  4 x3

Notations:

linear transformation T: R n → R by TA: R→
We can also denote the standard matrix for T by the symbol [T], or T(x) = [T]x
Remark:
We have establish a correspondence between m×n matrices and linear
transformations from R n to R m :
To each matrix A there corresponds a linear transformation TA (multiplication by
A), and to each linear transformation T:
→R n R ,m there corresponds an
m×n matrix [T] (the standard matrix for T).
Properties of Matrix Transformations
The following theorem lists four basic properties of matrix transformations that
follow from the properties of matrix multiplication.
Theorem 4.9.2
If TA: Rn Rm and TB: Rn Rm are matrix multiplications, and if TA(x)=TB(x) for
every vector x in Rn, then A=B.
Examples
m
n
Zero Transformation from R to R
If 0 is the m×n zero matrix and 0 is the zero vector in R n, then for every
vector x in R n
T0(x) = 0x = 0
n
So multiplication by zero maps every vector in R into the zero vector in
.R m . We call T0 the zero transformation from R n to R m .
Identity operator on R n
If I is the n×n identity, then for every vector in R n
TI(x) = Ix = x
So multiplication by I maps every vector in R n into itself. We call TI the
identity operator on R n .
A Procedure for Finding Standard Matrices
Reflection Operators
2
3
In general, operators on R and R that map each vector into its symmetric
image about some line or plane are called reflection operators.
Such operators are linear.
Projection Operators
In general, a projection operator (or more precisely an orthogonal
projection operator) on R 2 or R 3 is any operator that maps each
vector into its orthogonal projection on a line or plane through the origin.
The projection operators are linear.
Rotation Operators
2
An operator that rotate each vector in R through a fixed angle θ is called a
rotation operator on R 2 .
A Rotation of Vectors in R3
• A rotation of vectors in R3 is usually described
in relation to a ray emanating from the origin, called
the axis of rotation.
• As a vector revolves around the axis of rotation
it sweeps out some portion of a cone.
• The angle of rotation is described as “clockwise”
or “counterclockwise” in relation to a viewpoint that is
along the axis of rotation looking toward the origin.
•
The counterclockwise direction for a rotation about its axis can be
determined by a “right hand rule”.
Example: Use matrix multiplication to find the image of the vector (1, 1) when it is
rotated through an angle of 30 degree (  / 6 )
Solution:
Dilation and Contraction Operators
2
3
If k is a nonnegative scalar, the operator on R or R is called a contraction
with factor k if 0 ≤ k ≤ 1 and a dilation with factor k if k ≥ 1 .
Expansion and Compressions
In a dilation or contraction of R2 or R3, all coordinates are multiplied by a factor
k. If only one of the coordinates is multiplied by k, then the resulting
operator is called an expansion or compression with factor k.
Shears
A matrix operator of the form T(x, y)=(x+ky, y) is called the shear in the xdirection with factor k.
Similarly, a matrix operator of the form T(x, y)=(x, y+kx) is called the shear in
the y-direction with factor k.

If TA : R → R and TB : R → R are linear transformations, then for
n
k
each x in R one can first compute TA(x), which is a vector in R , and TB
then one can compute TB(TA(x)), which is a vector in R m .
Thus, the application of TA followed by TB produces a transformation from
to R m . This transformation is called the composition of TB with TA and is
denoted by T T . Thus
B

The composition TB TA
(TB TA )(x)  (TB (TA (x))
is linear since
(TB TA )(x)  (TB (TA (x))  B( Ax)  ( BA)x
The standard matrix for TB TA is BA. That is,
TB TA  TBA
Rn
Remark:
TB TA  TBA captures an important idea: Multiplying matrices is equivalent to
composing the corresponding linear transformations in the right-to-left order of
the factors.

Alternatively, If T1 : R  R and T2 : R  R are linear transformations, then because
the standard matrix for the composition T2 T1 is the product of the standard matrices
of T2 and T1, we have
T2
T1   T2  T1 
Example: Find the standard matrix for the linear operator T : R 2  R 2 that first reflects
A vector about the y-axis, then reflects the resulting vector about the x-axis.
Solution:
Note: the composition is NOT commutative.
Example: Let T1 : R2  R2 be the reflection operator about the line y=x, and let
T2 : R2  R2 be the orthogonal projection on the y-axis. Then
T1

Thus, T2 T1 and T2 T1 have different effects on a vector x.

Section 5.1 Eigenvalue and Eigenvector
In general, the image of a vector x under multiplication by a square matrix A
differs from x in both magnitude and direction. However, in the special case
where x is an eigenvector of A, multiplication by A leaves the direction
unchanged.
Depending on the sign and magnitude of the eigenvalue λ corresponding to x,
the operation Ax= λx compresses or stretches x by a factor of λ, with a
reversal of direction in the case where λ is negative.
