• Notes:
The process of finding the unit vector in the direction of v is
called normalizing the vector v.
• A standard unit vector in Rn:
e 1 , e 2 ,  , e n   1,0 ,  ,0 , 0 ,1,  ,0 , 0 ,0 ,  ,1

Ex:
the standard unit vector in R2: i , j   1, 0 , 0 ,1 
the standard unit vector in R3:
i ,
j, k  
1, 0 , 0 , 0 ,1, 0 , 0 , 0 ,1 

• Euclidean n-space:
Rn was defined to be the set of all order n-tuples of real
numbers. When Rn is combined with the standard
operations of vector addition, scalar multiplication,
vector length, and the dot product, the resulting vector
space is called Euclidean n-space.

Orthogonal complement of W:
Let W be a subspace of an inner product space V.
(a) A vector u in V is said to orthogonal to W,
if u is orthogonal to every vector in W.
(b) The set of all vectors in V that are orthogonal to W is
called the orthogonal complement of W.

• Notes:
(1) Among all the scalar multiples of a vector u, the
orthogonal projection of v onto u is the one that is
closest to v.
(2) Among all the vectors in the subspace W, the vector
proj W v is the closest vector to v.


Least squares problem:
Ax  b
m  n n 1 m 1
(A system of linear equations)
(1) When the system is consistent, we can use the Gaussian
elimination with back-substitution to solve for x
(2) When the system is inconsistent, how to find the “best
possible” solution of the system. That is, the value of x for
which the difference between Ax and b is small.

Least squares solution:
Given a system Ax = b of m linear equations in n unknowns,
the least squares problem is to find a vector x in Rn that
minimizes
Ax  b
with respect to the Euclidean inner
product on Rn. Such a vector is called a least squares
solution of Ax = b.

problem Ax = b)
5-36
• Note:
The problem of finding the least squares solution of A x  b
is equal to he problem of finding an exact solution of the
associated normal system A  A xˆ  A  b .

Thm:
For any linear system A x  b , the associated normal system


A A xˆ  A b
is consistent, and all solutions of the normal system are least
squares solution of Ax = b. Moreover, if W is the column space
of A, and x is any least squares solution of Ax = b, then the
orthogonal projection of b on W is
proj W b  A x
5-37
• Thm:
If A is an m×n matrix with linearly independent column vectors,
then for every m×1 matrix b, the linear system Ax = b has a
unique least squares solution. This solution is given by

x  ( A A)
1


Moreover, if W is the column space of A, then the orthogonal
projection of b on W is

proj W b  A x  A ( A A )
