hello, i've been reading some proofs and in keep finding this same argument tyo prove that a linear map is injective viz, we suppose that t(a,c) = 0 and then we deduce that a,c = 0,0. is it the case that the only way a linear map could be non injective is if it took two elements to zero? i.e. t injective iff ker(t) not zero?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
