Wow. These lectures and examples are really good. I have just one month for my exams and I haven't understood any of this till now because university lectures are completely useless. I am really glad that I found this at least just before my exams. This really helps. Thanks a lot.

Hello Professor Raffi,

Very good explanation of subspaces. However, I have a question about one subspace. How would you approach this to show whether it's a subspace or not. Here is it, " subset of all polynomials in P5 for which p(1)=p(3)"....how would you tackle this problem? Thanks again, your lectures are very helpful.

Hi Raffi, Once again: Great video. I want to make sure I understood the conclusion to example 2 100%. Can you clarify that this is correct?

So w is a subspace of the Vector space V because:

A)The subset (a,b,0) satisfies the list of operations for vector spaces (closure etc.) when applying the 2 operations (+) and (*)

B)When testing for closure the vector A1+A2=(a1+a2,b1+b2,0) Is of the same form, so if we ended up with a non-zero z-cordinate it would be outside of the subset and therefore the subspace is not a vectorspace.

Can you say R^3 alone is a vector space? Does it mean that every vector in R^3 is a vector space? And so R^2 is a subset of R^3 but not vice versa.

Have a great day

Christian

Hi Manfred,

Thank you so much for the kind words -- they truly mean a lot to me. I'm thrilled that Mathematics is beautiful to you; and I'm happy we can bring some of this beauty to you in our courses and lessons.

Have fun.

Just when I thought the lecture was losing a bit of momentum, you pull a VS from the polynomial ring, and have my full attention back in an instant. You probably get messages like this all the time, but: You're just an awesome instructor!

Hi Matt,

I you're doing well.

When a set is closed under addition, this means that if I take two elements from that set and add them, the result is yet another element in that set. For example, the set of even numbers: if I take any two even numbers and add them, the result is always an even number -- so the even numbers are closed under addition. Now let's take the odd numbers: if I add any two odd numbers, I get an even number -- the result of the addition lands me outside the set of add numbers -- so the odd numbers are NOT closed under addition.

Now, this question. Our set is given, and the two elements are the vectors (a, a-2) & (b,b-2). When I add these I get the (a+b, a+b-4). Does it make sense how we got this?

The question is: Is this result vector in the original set? The first component is a+b. Let's call this M. The second component is a+b-4. Let's call this M-4. Now we have (M,M-4).

Does this last vector look like it belongs to the original set? NO -- because any vector in the original set has to be of the form (P, P-2). When we added we got (m, M-4) -- we landed outside of the set -- therefore NOT closed under addition...therefore, NOT a Subspace.

I hope this made sense. Please let me know if it did not, and I will prepare a short document for you with other examples and upload it to my "Linear Algebra for Educator.com" Group page on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/344583348957004/

Best wishes, and take good care

Post by Matt Cypert on March 23, 2013

Hello,

V=R^2. If I had a subset S = {(x,x-2): xâˆˆR} is it a subspace of V.

First I use addition

u = (a, a-2)

v = (b, b-2)

u+v = (a+b, a + b - 4). The book says it is not closed under addition, therefore it is not a subspace, but it does not go into any detail as to why. In all your examples they seemed to all work out or be a subspace. Could you possibly explain to me why this is not closed under addition making it not a subspace?
