  • Prime Ideal is Irreducible in a Commutative RingPrime Ideal is Irreducible in a Commutative Ring Let $R$ be a commutative ring. An ideal $I$ of $R$ is said to be irreducible if it cannot be written as an intersection of two ideals of $R$ which are strictly larger than $I$. Prove that if $\frakp$ is a prime ideal of the commutative ring $R$, then $\frakp$ is […]
  • A Group Homomorphism is Injective if and only if the Kernel is TrivialA Group Homomorphism is Injective if and only if the Kernel is Trivial Let $G$ and $H$ be groups and let $f:G \to K$ be a group homomorphism. Prove that the homomorphism $f$ is injective if and only if the kernel is trivial, that is, $\ker(f)=\{e\}$, where $e$ is the identity element of $G$.     Definitions/Hint. We recall several […]
  • Find an Orthonormal Basis of the Given Two Dimensional Vector SpaceFind an Orthonormal Basis of the Given Two Dimensional Vector Space Let $W$ be a subspace of $\R^4$ with a basis \[\left\{\, \begin{bmatrix} 1 \\ 0 \\ 1 \\ 1 \end{bmatrix}, \begin{bmatrix} 0 \\ 1 \\ 1 \\ 1 \end{bmatrix} \,\right\}.\] Find an orthonormal basis of $W$. (The Ohio State […]
  • If Every Trace of a Power of a Matrix is Zero, then the Matrix is NilpotentIf Every Trace of a Power of a Matrix is Zero, then the Matrix is Nilpotent Let $A$ be an $n \times n$ matrix such that $\tr(A^n)=0$ for all $n \in \N$. Then prove that $A$ is a nilpotent matrix. Namely there exist a positive integer $m$ such that $A^m$ is the zero matrix. Steps. Use the Jordan canonical form of the matrix $A$. We want […]
  • The Inverse Matrix is UniqueThe Inverse Matrix is Unique Let $A$ be an $n\times n$ invertible matrix. Prove that the inverse matrix of $A$ is uniques.   Hint. That the inverse matrix of $A$ is unique means that there is only one inverse matrix of $A$. (That's why we say "the" inverse matrix of $A$ and denote it by […]
  • The Coordinate Vector for a Polynomial with respect to the Given BasisThe Coordinate Vector for a Polynomial with respect to the Given Basis Let $\mathrm{P}_3$ denote the set of polynomials of degree $3$ or less with real coefficients. Consider the ordered basis \[B = \left\{ 1+x , 1+x^2 , x - x^2 + 2x^3 , 1 - x - x^2 \right\}.\] Write the coordinate vector for the polynomial $f(x) = -3 + 2x^3$ in terms of the basis […]
  • Subspace Spanned By Cosine and Sine FunctionsSubspace Spanned By Cosine and Sine Functions Let $\calF[0, 2\pi]$ be the vector space of all real valued functions defined on the interval $[0, 2\pi]$. Define the map $f:\R^2 \to \calF[0, 2\pi]$ by \[\left(\, f\left(\, \begin{bmatrix} \alpha \\ \beta \end{bmatrix} \,\right) \,\right)(x):=\alpha \cos x + \beta […]
  • Eigenvalues of a Hermitian Matrix are Real NumbersEigenvalues of a Hermitian Matrix are Real Numbers Show that eigenvalues of a Hermitian matrix $A$ are real numbers. (The Ohio State University Linear Algebra Exam Problem)   We give two proofs. These two proofs are essentially the same. The second proof is a bit simpler and concise compared to the first one. […]
