### Is it true that $\biggl\|I-\frac{vv^T}{v^Tv}\biggr\|=1$?

I am following a proof in the text OPTIMIZATION THEORY AND METHODS a springer series by WENYU SUN and YA-XIANG YUAN. I come across what seems obvious that for a column vector $v$, with dimension ...

### Concepts of isomorphisms of linear spaces with a norm and inner product

If I have a topological space, I say that a homeomorphic map preserves the structure of this space. Thus, in order to preserve topological properties we want to have a continuous bijection with a ...

### What is a good reference for learning about induced norms?

Wikipedia tells me a little about it. Following the wiki-link treasure hunt leads me to topics such as "p-norms on finite dimensional vector spaces". Which makes me want to ask: what's a good ...

### Proving result on spectral radius

How do I prove that $$\rho(A)=\inf\limits_{\text{operator norms}}\|A\|,$$ $\rho$ being the spectral radius, $A$ being a complex $n\times n$ matrix and operator norms being induced from vector norms by ...

### Is Frobenius norm induced up to a scalar factor?

I know that the Frobenius norm is not induced since $||I||_F=\sqrt n\neq 1$. But what if we consider the norm $\frac 1 {\sqrt n} ||\cdot ||_F$? Thank you!

### Proving result on matrix norms

How do I prove that, letting, for $A\in\mathbb{C}^{n\times n}$: $$(a)\quad\|A\|_1=\max\limits_{i=1,\cdots,n}\left(\sum\limits_{j=1}^n|a_{ij}|\right),$$ $$(b)\quad\|A\|_2=\rho^{\frac12}(A^HA),$$ with ...

### Matrix inner product, and operator and trace norm inequality

I have trouble proving the following inequality. Let a matrix $A \in \mathbb{R}^{M \times N}$, and $\sigma_i(A)$ be the i-largest singular value of A. Define the operator norm and the trace norm as ...

### Are isometries always linear?

Let $E$ be a finite dimensional vector space (over a field of characteristic zero) and $f : E \rightarrow E$ be an isometry fixing 0. Must $f$ be linear in this case ? Note : I am NOT assuming that ...

### Norm of a Vector

Suppose $A\inℝ^{n,n}$. We Define $$\|A\| = \underset{\|x\| = 1}{\sup} \frac {\|Ax\|} {\|x\|}$$ Show it is a norm. Any thoughts?

### Is a norm on $R^n$ linear?

I was reading the book Linear Algebra Done Right by Axler. In the chapter on inner product space (Ch.6), he defines the norm of x on $R^n$ space as: $||x|| = \sqrt{x_1^2 + ... + x_n^2}$ and says: ...

### Norm of symmetric positive semidefinite matrices

I have been researching a lot trying to find an answer to my question and didn't find any so I would appreciate it if anyone can help. If we have 2 symmetric, positive semi-definite matrices $A$ and ...

### Operator in $\mathbb R^2$

I am a bit confused, can someone help me with the following? Is there an operator $T$ in $\mathbb{R}^2$ such that: $\parallel u \parallel +\parallel v\parallel = \parallel T(u+v)\parallel$ for every ...

### Prove triangle inequality of vector norm

I am trying to show that $||x+y||_p \leq ||x||_p + ||y||_p$ where $p$ is an integer larger than 1, but not infinity (I proved those cases already), and $||x||_p = (\sum_{i=1}^n |x_i|^p)^{\frac{1}{p}}$ ...
### Consistency of matrix norm: $||Ax||_2 \leq ||A||_{Frobenius}||x||_2$
I'm trying to show that $||Ax||_2 \leq ||A||_{F}||x||_2$ where $A$ is an n by n matrix, $x\in \mathbb R^n$, $||x||_2$ is the euclidean norm, and $||A||_F$ is the frobenius norm. I actually wrote ...
