Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let L: \[R ^{2} > R ^{2} \] be the linear transformation defined by \[L[\left(\begin{matrix}a \\ b\end{matrix}\right)]= \left[\begin{matrix}1 & 2 \\ 2 & 4\end{matrix}\right] \left(\begin{matrix}a \\ b\end{matrix}\right)\] a)find ker L b) find a set of vectors spanning range L.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i guess its just L . ker is a printing mistake sorry for that uncle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh, kernel is the same thing as null space for a linear transformation i.e. the set of all \(\vec x\) in \(A\vec x=\vec 0\) is the kernel, so just solve that matrix to find part a)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is, solve\[ \left[\begin{matrix}1 & 2 \\ 2 & 4\end{matrix}\right] \left(\begin{matrix}a \\ b\end{matrix}\right)=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then we'll get two eqs right ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, from which we will get the two vectors that will make up the basis of our kernel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hm... I'm perhaps a bit confused because my notes don't seem to agree with wikipedia. I think the dimension of the null space, i.e. the nullity is the kernal in that case, the answer to part a) would be the number of vectors that make up the basis for the null space of your transformation matrix the answer to part b) must then be the basis itself I guess, which is the set of vectors that span \(A\vec x=\vec0\)
