An .. = b1 a1 + b2 a2 + · · · + bn an . 11), and an important Linear Algebra? 11: Transposing a matrix. equality is (AB) = B A . The transposition operation is useful for expressing an inner product between two vectors in a matrix form: v, w = v w = w v . As we shall see in later chapters, we often solve problems by finding a vector x that satisfies a set of equations represented in a matrix form, Ax = b. The system of equations Ax = b has a unique solution if the matrix A is non-singular (we assume A is a square matrix).

In Chapter 4 we will review the singular value decomposition (SVD), which will tell us how general linear transformations behave, among other things. Finding the coordinates of a vector Suppose we are given a basis v1 , v2 , v3 in R3 . An arbitrary vector a ∈ R3 has three coordinates denoted by, say, α1 , α2 , α3 and associated with the basis vectors: n a= α i vi . i=1 Linear Algebra? 27 To extract the αi , we can use the linearity of the space and form inner products that give us n a, vj = αi vi , vj , i=1 and thus we have a, v1 = α1 v1 , v1 + α1 v2 , v1 + α3 v3 , v1 ; a, v2 = α2 v1 , v2 + α1 v2 , v2 + α3 v3 , v2 ; a, v3 = α3 v1 , v3 + α1 v2 , v3 + α3 v3 , v3 .

That is Ax = λx ⇔ Ax − λx = 0 ⇔ Ax − λIx = 0 ⇔ (A − λI)x = 0 . So, a nontrivial solution exists if and only if det(A − λI) = 0. The expression det(A − λI) can be developed into a polynomial of degree n called the characteristic polynomial of A. The roots of this characteristic polynomial are the eigenvalues of A. Therefore, there are always n eigenvalues (some or all of which may be complex). If n is odd, there is at least one real eigenvalue. Let us look at an example: 1 0 2 A = 3 0 −3 .
