NOTE: Questions 1 d), 1 e), 2 a), 5 and 7 c) will be marked.
1. Determine whether the indicated function ,·i deﬁnes an inner product on the vector space
V. If it is an inner product, prove that each of the four conditions in the deﬁnition of inner
product is satisﬁed. If it is not an inner product, demonstrate (with an explicit example) how
one of the conditions fails to hold.
a) Let Vbe the vector space of continuous functions from the interval [0,1] to the real
numbers R. Set
hf1, f2i=Z1
0
f1(t)f2(t)dt+f1(0)f2(0), f1, f2V.
b) Let V=C2and A=52i
2i3. Set hx, yi=xAy,x,yC2. (Here, if y= (y1, y2),
then y=¯y1
¯y2.)
c) Let V=R2. Set
hx, yi=x1y14x2y2,for x= (x1, x2), y = (y1, y2)V.
d) Let V=P2(C) be the space of polynomials of degree at most two, having complex
coeﬃcients. Let
hf1, f2i= 3f1(0)f2(0) + +2f1(i)f2(i), f1, f2V.
e) Let Vbe an inner product space, with inner product ,·i0. Suppose that T:VVis a
linear transformation. Set
hx, yi=hx, yi0+hT(x), T (y)i0, x, y V.
f) Let Vbe an inner product space, with inner product ,·i0. Suppose that T:VVis a
linear transformation that has the property hT(x), x i06=0whenever xVand x6=0.
Set
hx, yi=hx, T (y)i0+hT(x), y i0, x, y V.
2. §6.1, #22.
3. Let ,·i be the inner product on R3deﬁned by
h(x, y, z),(x0, y0, z0)i= 3xx0+ 2yy0+zz0.
Let β={(1,1,0),(1,0,1),(0,1,1) }.
a) Use the Gram-Schmidt process to convert βto an orthogonal basis (relative to the above
inner product).
b) Express the vector (0,2,1) as a linear combination of the vectors from the orthogonal
basis obtained in part a).
