1.Label the following statements as true or false. In each part, V and W
are finite-dimensional vector spaces (over F ), and T is a function from
V to W.
(a)(b)(c)(d)(e)(f )(g)(h)If T is linear, then T preserves sums and scalar products.
If T(x + y) = T(x) + T(y), then T is linear.
T is one-to-one if and only if the only vector x such that T(x) = 0
is x = 0 .
If T is linear, then T(0 V ) = 0 W .
If T is linear, then nullity(T) + rank(T) = dim(W).
If T is linear, then T carries linearly independent subsets of V onto
linearly independent subsets of W.
If T, U : V → W are both linear and agree on a basis for V, then
T = U.
Given x1 , x2 ∈ V and y1 , y2 ∈ W, there exists a linear transforma-
tion T : V → W such that T(x1 ) = y1 and T(x2 ) = y2 .
For Exercises 2 through 6, prove that T is a linear transformation, and find
bases for both N(T) and R(T). Then compute the nullity and rank of T, and
verify the dimension theorem. Finally, use the appropriate theorems in this
section to determine whether T is one-to-one or onto.

Definitions. Let V be a vector space, and let T : V → V be linear. A
subspace W of V is said to be T-invariant if T(x) ∈ W for every x ∈ W, that
is, T(W) ⊆ W. If W is T-invariant, we define the restriction of T on W to
be the function TW : W → W defined by TW (x) = T(x) for all x ∈ W.
Exercises 28–32 assume that W is a subspace of a vector space V and that
T : V → V is linear. Warning: Do not assume that W is T-invariant or that
T is a projection unless explicitly stated.

(b) Suppose that R(T) ∩ N(T) = {0 }. Prove that V = R(T) ⊕ N(T).
Be careful to say in each part where finite-dimensionality is used.
36.Let V and T be as defined in Exercise 21.
(a)(b)Prove that V = R(T)+N(T), but V is not a direct sum of these two
spaces. Thus the result of Exercise 35(a) above cannot be proved
without assuming that V is finite-dimensional.
Find a linear operator T1 on V such that R(T1 ) ∩ N(T1 ) = {0 } but
V is not a direct sum of R(T1 ) and N(T1 ). Conclude that V being
finite-dimensional is also essential in Exercise 35(b).

are vector spaces over the field of rational numbers, then any additive
function from V into W is a linear transformation.
38.Let T : C → C be the function defined by T(z) = z. Prove that T is
additive (as defined in Exercise 37) but not linear.
39.Prove that there is an additive function T : R → R (as defined in Ex-
ercise 37) that is not linear. Hint: Let V be the set of real numbers
regarded as a vector space over the field of rational numbers. By the
corollary to Theorem 1.13 (p. 60), V has a basis β. Let x and y be two
distinct vectors in β, and define f : β → V by f (x) = y, f (y) = x, and
f (z) = z otherwise. By Exercise 34, there exists a linear transformation

Suppose that {U1 , U2 , . . . , Un } is a collection of pairwise commutative
linear operators on a vector space V (i.e., operators such that UiUj =
Uj Ui for all i, j). Prove that, for any i (1 ≤ i ≤ n),

of the pendulum and g is the magnitude of acceleration due to gravity.
The variable t and constants l and g must be in compatible units (e.g.,
t in seconds, l in meters, and g in meters per second per second).

nation of two real-valued solutions.
(b) Find the unique solution to the equation that satisfies the condi-
tions
θ(0) = θ0 > 0
andθ (0) = 0.
(The significance of these conditions is that at time t = 0 the
pendulum is released from a position displaced from the vertical
by θ0 .)
(c) Prove that it takes 2π l/g units of time for the pendulum to make
one circuit back and forth. (This time is called the period of the
pendulum.)
17. Periodic Motion of a Spring without Damping. Find the general solu-
tion to (3), which describes the periodic motion of a spring, ignoring
frictional forces.
18.Periodic Motion of a Spring with Damping. The ideal periodic motion
described by solutions to (3) is due to the ignoring of frictional forces.
In reality, however, there is a frictional force acting on the motion that
is proportional to the speed of motion, but that acts in the opposite
direction. The modification of (3) to account for the frictional force,
called the damping force, is given by
my + ry + ky = 0 ,
where r > 0 is the proportionality constant.
