EMET7001 Introduction to economic models

2018S1

Problem set #09

Introduction The first set of problems are for discussion in the tutorials in week 10. The problems on the second page are the homework assignment which is part of the course assessment.

Problem 1 Compute the matrix products:

.. (c).

c

Problem 2 Use Gaussian elimination to find the values of a for which the equation system

x + y - 2z = a + 7

3x -y + az = -3

-x + ay - 4z = 8

has (i) exactly one solution; (ii) more than one solution; (iii) no solution.

Problem 3 The trace, tr(A), of any n × n matrix A = (aij) is defined by tr( . That is, tr(A) is the sum of all the diagonal elements of A. Show that if A and B are n × n matrices and c is any scalar, then:

(a) tr(A + B) = tr(A) + tr(B). (b) tr(cA) = ctr(A).

(c) tr(A0) = tr(A). (d) tr(AB) = tr(BA).

Problem 4 Let a , and c . Find a + b + c, a- 2b + 2c, and 3a + 2b- 3c.

Problem 5 For what values of x is the inner product of 2x, x, and x, -x, x equal to 0?

Problem 6 Let a , and c . Compute kak, kbk and kck, and verify that the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality holds for a and b.

Problem 7 Let a .

1. Show that a is a point in the plane -x + 2y + 3z = 1.

2. Find the equation for the normal at a to the plane in part (1).
