Theorem 10
If T is a linear transformation, then there exists a unique matrix A such that T(x) = Ax for all x in R ^n.
standard matrix for the linear transformation T
The matrix A in [T(e1) ... T (en)] x = Ax
geometric linear transformations
determined by what they do to the columns of I2; 1. reflections (over axes/ lines); 2. contractions/ expansions (size changes); 3. shears (stretching diagonally); 4. projections
mapping T onto R^ m
each b in R^ m is the image of at least one x in R^n; (consistency)
mapping T one to one
each b in R^ m is the image of at most one x in R^ n; (uniqueness)
Theorem 11
If T is a linear transformation, then T is one to one iff the equation T (x) = 0 has only the trivial solution (linearly independent set)
