Linear Algebra: Determine if this set is a vector space. Either show that the necessary properties are satisfied, or give an example showing that at least one of them is not. -The set P of all polynomials, with the usual definition of scalar multiplication, but with addition defined as polynomial multiplication (so f + g (morphed addition) is equal to the product of f and g).

    i think this will fail in terms of scaler multiplication

    should have \[a(\overline{v}+\overline{w})=a\overline{v}+a\overline{w}\]

    but \[a(f\oplus g)\neq af\oplus ag\]

    Hey thank you very much :-). I just don't get this vector space stuff at all. It's okay if it's not totally correct, I'll look for some similar examples.

    actaully i am sure it is right. need to check against vector space axioms. the point of this exercise is to get you to learn them.

    Yeah I understand. It's hard just trying to get a grasp on vector spaces at this point. I don't get the concept of "redefining" the axioms. It's all very strange to me. Anyway, thank you again. I will try my hardest to learn the material :-)

    Sorry to bug you again, but I have another question... So addition is defined as polynomial multiplication, f(+)g = f*g. Are you using (g) to show that this is not a vector space? http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/LinAlg/VectorSpaces.aspx

    I think my main problem was this book we had to use. I hated it. http://www.amazon.com/Linear-Algebra-Third-John-Fraleigh/dp/0201526751 Maybe the instructors like it, but it's not student friendly.

    That's alright. And the other thing is, I learn through looking at tons of examples. So I'll try to get my hands on an instructors solutions manual. I don't really think it's cheating because we won't even be using that book for the class anyway.
