If we have a linear transformation T:W -> W. Then if we write T with respect to a different basis B, will the domain and range still be W? So, will we have $[T]_B : W \rightarrow W$ ?

If not, can anybody explain to me why?

 Recognitions: Homework Help Science Advisor micromass is of course quite right in an intrinsic sense. nothing auxiliary changes the domain and range of a map. still i look at these things a little differently. to me a basis is an isomorphism from the given vector space V to a coordinate space R^n. then the matrix associated to that basis is a map from coordinate space to itself. i.e. if T:V-->V, and the basis B defines the isom B:V-->R^n, then we have [T]B:R^n-->R^n, where the composition B^-1o[T]BoB: V-->R^n-->R^n-->V equals T:V-->V. Thus in this sense, the domain of [T]B is R^n not V, and the range of [T]B is the image of the range of T under the isomorphism B:V-->R^n.

I'm not sure if I understand this...You say that micromass's answer would be considered right, but then you say "domain of [T]B is R^n not V, and the range of [T]B is the image of the range of T under the isomorphism B:V-->R^n." So would it be wrong to say $[T]_B : V \rightarrow V$?
