A. I can show that A is either hermitian or antihermitian by
$$(B^\dagger B=1-A^2)^\dagger$$
$$B^\dagger B=1-A^\dagger A^\dagger$$
comparing, we know that
$$A^\dagger = \pm A$$
I don't know how I can make use of the communtation relation to get hermiticity of B. But I know that A and B must have...
My work so far:
I am stuck because when I inputted the two possible values of t and k, neither solution worked. Where did I go wrong? Pointers would be appreciated! :)
Hi Physics Forums,
Quick question! Are every automorphism on a vectors space ## V ## over some field ## \mathbb{F} ## nothing but the identity mapping in disguise?
The reason for asking is; automorphisms are (from my point of view) basically a change of basis, and vectors are invariant under...
Say we have as special lattice ## \Lambda^{\perp}(A) = \left\{z \in \mathbf{Z^m} : Az = 0 \in \mathbf{Z_q^n}\right\}##. We define ##U \in \mathbf{Z^{m \times m}}## as an invertible matrix then I want to proof the following fact:
$$ \Lambda^{\perp}(AU) = U^{-1} \Lambda^{\perp}(A) $$
My idea:
Let...
I will be taking intermediate mechanics next semester, and am a bit concerned about potential gaps in my mathematical knowledge. Long story short, I used to be a physics major, switched to electrical engineering, and then decided to double major after a semester in EE. The issue is that, as a...
Evening,
The reason for this post is because as the title suggests, I have a question concerning matrix transformation. These are essentially test prep problems and I am quite stuck to be honest.

My question is about basic algebra. I am thinking about the "why" here and I'm looking for an intuitive answer.If you have the following equations:
=>S+U=90
=>S+U=90
and
=>40S+25U=2625
=>40S+25U=2625
you can then rewrite S=90−U and then substitute.
Now you have a single equation with one...
Hello everyone, I'm a CS student and I'm taking a course called Linear Algebra
it's very easy, but there is one thing that I'm not clearly understanding
i know how the general way to prove if given vectors span a vspace,
ex : v1,v2,v3 i put them in a Matrix form and prove the determinant...
An orthogonal basis set spanning R4 has four vectors, v1, v2, v3 and v4.
If v1 and v2 are
[ −1 2 3 0 ] and [−1 1 −1 0 ]
ﬁnd v3 and v4.
Please explain this in a very simple way.
I'm trying to draw a circle and a (possibly rotated) square on a grid. I have the circle part down and it's the square that is giving me trouble. I am originally given 2 points which represent the coordinates containing opposite ends of the square. For example, those 2 points would be (8,14) and...

The problem
I am trying to write the equation for the plane on the following form ## ax + by + cz + d = 0 ##

\begin{cases}
x = 1 + s - t \\
y = 2 - s \\
z = -1 + 2s
