- Assignment 10 has been graded and is available outside MC 4031.
- The solution to Assignment 9, question 1b has been corrected.
- On Assignment 8, question 1, you should assume that T = ∑
_{j}λ_{j}P_{j}is the spectral decomposition of T. Also, in part b, both sums should be from*j*= 0 to ∞. - On Assignment 5, question 2d, you should also assume that
*D*is regular. - On Assignment 4, question 4c, you should find an invertible matrix
*S*such that*S*^{-1}*AS*,*S*^{-1}*DS*are both diagonal, not*S*^{-1}*AS*,*S*^{-1}*BS*. Also, in question 5, a permutation matrix has exactly one 1 in each row*and in each column*. - On Assignment 1, question 2, T should be a linear transformation from V ⊗ V to itself, not from V to itself.
- Office hours will not be held on 12 or 13 January. Please send any questions that arise by email; you can expect a prompt reply.
