 Feb 23 comment Prove $\sin^2\theta + \cos^2\theta = 1$ @Sami Ben Romdhane How do we get last implication? Where did it come from? Feb 22 answered Find a vector that spans the given set Feb 22 comment Find a vector that spans the given set -2,5,3 is a vector from H. I think the answer 1,3,2 is incorrect. How do we get -2,5,3 from 1,3,2? Feb 22 comment Basis for a vectorspace The condition given, $\text{dim}(U)=2$, implies they exist Feb 22 comment Basis for a vectorspace condition $\text{dim}(U)=2$ implies that $U$ is spanned by two independent vectors from $\mathbb{R}^3$. Task is to show them. Feb 22 comment Basis for a vectorspace are you sure this is written as you said?

Then we show that it is true for any n, based on fact that n-1 is positive definite. The result for n comes always from the fact that $\det A^TA = ( \det A )^2>0$ Oct 7 comment Prove an implication about quadratic form definiteness We want to prove => in statement: quadratic form $q$ over an $n$-dimensional real linear space $V$ is positive definite $\iff$ all main minors $\Delta_1, \Delta_2, ..., \Delta_n > 0$ Oct 7 comment Prove an implication about quadratic form definiteness @Daniel "Thus, by induction on the dimension its main minors are positive." - but the fact that if q is positive then minors are positive is what we have to PROVE now
