Quadratic Form in Linear Algebra

Matrix of a Quadratic Form in 3 Variables

Quadratic Form in Linear Algebra An expression is called quadratic form in the variables x1, x2, x3,………….,xn over field F. Where aij i=1,2,3,….n, j=1,2,3,….m are elements of F. If aij are real then quadratic form is called real quadratic form. Examples of Quadratic Form 1-x12+x22+ 6 x1 x2 is a quadratic form in variables x1 … Read more Quadratic Form in Linear Algebra

Matrix-of-a-Linear-Transformation

Matrix Representation of a Linear Transformation Suppose U and V are two vector spaces over the same field F of dimensions m and n. Let A = {α1, α2, α 3,……,α3} and B={β1, β2, β3,…….,βn} be ordered bases of U and V. If T is a linear transformation such that T:U->V and it is defined … Read more Matrix Representation of a Linear Transformation

Caley-Hamilton Theorem

Caley-Hamilton Theorem

To  understand  Caley-Hamilton theorem you have to know about characteristic polynomial. Characteristic Polynomial If A is a square matrix of of size n * n, and I is identity matrix of the same size as A. Then determinant |A-λI| will result in an equation of the form. Which is called characteristic equation of matrix A … Read more Caley-Hamilton Theorem
