Let P_{2} be the vector space of all polynomials of
degree less than or equal to 2.

(i) Show that {x + 1, x^{2} + x, x − 1} is a basis for
P_{2}.

(ii) Define a transformation L from P_{2} into
P_{2} by: L(f) = (xf)' . In other words,
L acts on the polynomial f(x) by first multiplying the function by
x, then differentiating. The result is another polynomial in
P_{2}. Prove that L is a linear transformation.

(iii) Compute the matrix representation of the linear
transformation L above with respect to the basis for P_{2}
from the first part of this problem.

+ f(0)g(0) + f(1)g(1) is an inner product and write out its Gram
matrix with respect to the basis (1,t,t2).

Let V be the vector space of 2 × 2 real matrices and let P2 be
the vector space of polynomials of degree less than or equal to 2.
Write down a linear transformation T : V ? P2 with rank 2. You do
not need to prove that the function you write down is a linear
transformation, but you may want to check this yourself. You do,
however, need to prove that your transformation has rank 2.
