Now it says in the book that A set of two or more vectors in a real inner product space is said to be orthogonal if all pairs of distinct vectors in the set are orthogonal. An orthogonal set in which each vector has norm 1 is said to be orthogonal.

Now in the problem before this I found that a,b, and d were orthogonal vectors. So would I use those 3 only, or all 4? I'm not sure what the latter part means "An orthogonal set in which each vector has norm 1 is said to be orthogonal." I would think we wouldn't know it was orthogonal, and isn't saying an orthogonal set is orthogonal kind of redundant??? If it meant that we know the vectors are already orthogonal then I would assume the 3 a b, and d.

b & c is a orthonormal set. a with (1,0) also is a orthonormal, but d is a (0,0) and it can not be in a orthonormal set.

I think that according to the definition I would have to just use the ones that make sense... C shouldn't be anything since it's not orthogonal, and according to definition 1 that states: A set of two or more vectors in a real inner product space is said to be orthogonal if all pairs of distinct vectors in the set are orthogonal.

Definition 1 stating "A set of two or more vectors in a real inner product space is said to be orthogonal if all pairs of distinct vectors in the set are orthogonal." So we also should concluded that set a and d are orthogonal, a and b are orthogonal, b and d are orthogonal to each other.

Now it also says that orthogonal sets have to have a norm = 1 to be orthogonal, so should I check for that also? a's norm is 2, but by normalizing it you get 1 as the new norm.

OrthoNormal = Orthogonal + Normal = Orthogonal + (Unit Length) Orthogonal  Calculate the Inner Product. If you get "0", you are done. They are Orthogonal. Normal  Calculate the Length of each Basis Vector. If all lengths are "1", you are done  Normal it is.

so did I do this correctly since the vectors a b and d are orthogonal, that the sets a and b, b and d, d and a are arthogonal?

tkhunnyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You will need to test all basis vectors, pairwise, for orthogonality. You will need to test all basis vecors individually for length. Just question on notation: a = (0, 1), 2, 0; Is that one basis vector (0,1) and another basis vector (2,0), or is it something else. I'm hoping you just failed to use the parentheses on the second vector. Otherwise, I don't know what it means.

This one?? I"t is not true that every vector space has a basis in the sense of Definition 1. The simplest example is the zero vector space, which contains no linearly independent sets and hence no basis. The following is an example of a nonzero vector space that has no basis in the sense of Definition 1 because it cannot be spanned by finitely many vectors."

Okay, we threw out 'c' as not being orthogonal. That leaves ONLY the length of the bvectors to consider. Are they length one (1)? I think we have a winner.

I did't think we needed to use basis on this one... :(

tkhunnyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
As far as the zero vector goes, it cannot be a Basis Vector, since it cannot EVER be linerly independent from other Basis Vectors. Example, If I have two basis vectors (1,0) and (0,1), I can get (0,0) from 0*(1,0) or from 0*(0,1). Definitely not a valid basis vector, zero.
 one year ago

tkhunnyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You always need to consider Basis Vectors, whether it is stated explicitly in the problem statement or not. The correct answer to 'd' is , "Cannot be an orthonormal basis, since it isn't a basis at all." We could also argue that the zero vector has length zero, which clearly is not one (1).

my book says that you can first take the norm of a vector, then normalize it based on that norm, then take the norm again to see.... In that case a would = 1.

tkhunnyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Maybe you're right. It does not ask, "Which form an orthonormal basis?" That is how I was thinking about the problem. It never hurts to go back and read the problem statement. Recap: a) No good. (2,0) has length 2, not 1 d) No good. (0,0) has length 0, not 1 c) No Good. Inner Product is 1, not 0 b) Got it!

DEFINITION 1 A set of two or more vectors in a real inner product space is said to be orthogonal if all pairs of distinct vectors in the set are orthogonal. An orthogonal set in which each vector has norm 1 is said to be orthonormal. I stand by this answer: a) No good. (2,0) has length 2, not 1 d) No good. (0,0) has length 0, not 1 c) No Good. Inner Product is 1, not 0 b) Got it! This seems to be most consistent with the problem statement and Definition #1.

Your picture has two sections. One side is determining orthogonality. The other side is concerned with CONSTRUCTING an orthonormal set. We are not doing any CONSTRUCTING in this problem. We are just determining if it has already been constructed.

That's it. In this case, if we don't get one (1), we throw our hands in the air and exclaim, "Not Normal!" We can make it Normal, but that is not part of this problem statement.

I'm all for exploration and playing around to see what works. This answer is my actual thought process for answering this problem specifically. First, I rule out the obvious ones: a) No good. (2,0) has length 2, not 1 d) No good. (0,0) has length 0, not 1 Then, with a little work, I narrow it down some more. c) No Good. Inner Product is 1, not 0 b) Got it! If you want to display it very well, I would do this a = (0, 1), (2, 0); \(\sqrt{0^{2} + 1^{2}} = \sqrt{1} = 1\)  Normal \(\sqrt{2^{2} + 0^{2}} = \sqrt{4} = 2\)  Not Normal \((<0,1>,<2,0>) = 0*2 + 1*0 = 0\)  Orthogonal This set is NOT orthonormal And then proceed similarly with the other three. b = (1/sqrt(2), 1/sqrt(2)), 1/sqrt(2), 1/sqrt(2); c = (1/sqrt(2), 1/sqrt(2)), 1/sqrt(2), 1/sqrt(2); d = (0, 0), 0, 1;

orthonormal. No extra 'g' in there. And yes, the "Norm" is essentially the Length. Ortholengthal just looks dumb, so we go with orthonormal. (Not really. I just made that up. MATH JOKES!!)

By the way we have a discussion post where it asks us to use 6.5 to post an example of why we should use this... Normally I go by what I know, but I'm curious if this will wokr... They talk about least square regression lines, and I saw one y = a + bx which I've used in Physics for finding % error and such in our data.
