True or False Problems of Vector Spaces and Linear Transformations

Problem 364

These are True or False problems.
For each of the following statements, determine if it contains a wrong information or not.

  1. Let $A$ be a $5\times 3$ matrix. Then the range of $A$ is a subspace in $\R^3$.
  2. The function $f(x)=x^2+1$ is not in the vector space $C[-1,1]$ because $f(0)=1\neq 0$.
  3. Since we have $\sin(x+y)=\sin(x)+\sin(y)$, the function $\sin(x)$ is a linear transformation.
  4. The set
    \[\left\{\, \begin{bmatrix}
    1 \\
    0 \\
    \end{bmatrix}, \begin{bmatrix}
    0 \\
    1 \\
    \end{bmatrix} \,\right\}\] is an orthonormal set.

If Column Vectors Form Orthonormal set, is Row Vectors Form Orthonormal Set?

Problem 317

Suppose that $A$ is a real $n\times n$ matrix.

(a) Is it true that $A$ must commute with its transpose?

(b) Suppose that the columns of $A$ (considered as vectors) form an orthonormal set.
Is it true that the rows of $A$ must also form an orthonormal set?
