For example, in (a), the entry a1,2 in the first row (i = 1) and second column (j = 2) is given by the formula ai,j = i + j = 1 + 2 = 3.) p. 11: Exercises #1-#3, for matrices (a) through (d) only. p. 15: #1(a,b), #2(a), #3(a), #4, #5. In LAN Chapter 2 Part 2: p. 28 Exercises #1-#3 2 Sep 4 LAN Ch3,Ch4 In LAN Chapter 3 Part 1: p. 4: Exercise #1, In LAN Chapter 4 Part 1: p. 11 Exercises #1(1-6), #2-#7 In LAN Chapter 4 Part 2: p. 16 Exercises #1-#3 3 Test: Sep 11 LAN Ch5 In LAN Chapter 5 Part 1: p. 13: Exercise #2-#4 (Note: DUD means directly using the definition. The only technique we have seen to solve these problems is to use the definition.) In LAN Chapter 5 Part 2: p. 16: Exercise #2 Let V be the vector space of real-valued functions on the whole real line over the scalar field of real numbers. Decide whether the following sets of functions are linearly independent or linearly dependent in V. {sin(x), sin(2x), x} {x2, x2 + 3x, 2x} 4 Sep 23 10.1-10.4 10.1 1-19 odd. 10.2 9-21 odd. 10.3 1-21 odd. 10.4 1-17 odd, 23-33 odd.
