Find a basis and state its dimension of a $C$-vector space polynomial.

The $C$ vector space $V$ of polynomials $P(t) \in C[t]$ of degree at most $n$ and such that $P(a) = P'(a) = 0$ for $a \in C$ fixed. Indication : prove that $P(t) \in V \Leftrightarrow (t − a)^2$ ...

Find a basis of $A = (\{1, \sin(x), (\cos)^2(x), (\sin)^2(x)1\})$ and determining its dimension.

We consider a space F(R,R) of functions of R in R. Let A = ({1, \sin(x), $\cos^2(x)$, $\sin^2(x)$}) Find a basis of the vector subspace of F(R,R) and determine its dimension. So I used the identity ...

dimension of the sum of two planes in $\mathbb{R}^3$

$\dim( U + V)=\dim( U) + \dim(V) - \dim( U \cap V)$ where U and V are linear subspaces and $U+V$ is algebraic sum (the least linear space that contains both $U$ and $V$). In case of two planes in ...

$T:V\rightarrow W$ such that $N(T)=V'\subset V$ and $R(T)=W'\subset W$

How should one prove that there exists a linear map $T:V\rightarrow W$ such that $N(T)=V'\subset V$ and $R(T)=W'\subset W$ if $\dim(V')+\dim(W')=\dim(V)$, where $V$ and $W$ are finite-dimensional ...

Dimension of coefficents in a density equation

The density throughout a composite material is given by $T(x, y, z) = Axy^2 + Bxz^3 + Cy^2z^3,$ where $x$, $y$ and $z$ are the cartesian coordinates of the position inside the material. (a) Find the ...

Does a basis span even linear systems?

I understood basis as a set of vector $v_{1},v_{2},...,v_{n}$ as the set whose linear combination will span the entire vector space say $ \mathbb R^{n}$ which makes perfect sense in intuitive terms. ...

Degrees of freedom

Grateful if someone could tell me whether my rationale is correct: If I impose $m$ constraints on $\mathbb R^n$ (where $n<\infty$), then the set has $n-m$ degrees of freedom. Hence this subspace ...
