right now, my concept for their difference is that linear transformations are 1 to 1, where as nonlinear transformations are not. However, P^n to P^(-1) is a linear transformation, but it's not 1 to 1.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the text book def of linear transformation is that it must be closed under addition and scale factorization.

I'm confused.
