Linear Transformations Problem

  1. Nov 29, 2007 #1
    Hello,
    Can someone help me with this problem? Thanks in advance
    Let T be a linear transformation such that T (v) = kv for v in R^n.
    Find the standard matrix for T.

    Can you show your attempt?
    Do you know what an eigenvector is?

    Pick the usual basis in R^n, evaluate T on those basis vectors. The results are the column vectors of the matrix of T. What does it look like?

    Cute (and almost trivial) problem!
