Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1F is usually a field, R^n being an example and other well known being complex or rational numbers .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you say its a field what does that mean? i gotta see like an example for it.. For example i know that R^2 = (a,b) < dimension of two but i dont know how to do F stuff is there some kind of chart?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1F is just an arbitrary field. When you say\[\mathbb{R}^2\]you mean\[(a,b), a,b\in \mathbb{R}\]all ordered pairs where a and b are in R. When you say\[\mathbb{F}^2\]we mean\[(a,b),a,b\in\mathbb{F}\]all ordered pairs where a,b come from the same field.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i see but my teacher do like some insane stuff like \[F2= sinx, e^x \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what would \[F^\infty \] would it be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\mathbb{F}^\infty \]would be the set of all infinite sequences. You could write it down as:\[(a_1,a_2,a_3,a_4,\ldots\]where\[a_i\in\mathbb{F}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so \[F\] is just another arbituary field like \[R \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Right. In most of linear algebra, we never use the properties that are specific to R (things like completeness, etc). We only use the field properties of R. So in the theory of linear algebra, we can talk in the most general of settings, an arbitrary field.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Everything we prove will of course work if we are in R, but it could also work for any field, whether its the complex numbers, or even finite fields.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i get it know but is there like a structure i need to follow? for example \[P2 =[ax^2+bx+c  a,b,c \in R ]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and like M2X2 is using the matrices.... is there any particular for \[F\]
