Linear Operators of R n x n

  1. Mar 11, 2010 #1

    My book doesn't have any examples of how to do this with matrices so I don't know how to approach this.

    Are you supposed to show that L is a linear operator? If so, just show that
    1) L(A + B) = L(A) + L(B)
    2) L(cA) = cL(A)

    Here A and B are n x n matrices and c is a scalar.
