The most function of those lectures is first to in brief survey the elemental con nection among the illustration concept of the symmetric workforce Sn and the speculation of symmetric features and moment to teach how combinatorial tools that come up obviously within the thought of symmetric features result in effective algorithms to precise a variety of prod ucts of representations of Sn when it comes to sums of irreducible representations.

Prove that the space of all m X n matrices by exhibiting a basis for this space. over the field F has dimension mn, 13. 1. 14. Let V be the set of real numbers. Regard V as a vector space over the field of rational numbers, with the usual operations. Prove that this vector space is not finite-dimensional. 4. Coordinates One of the useful features of a basis @ in an n-dimensional space V is that it essentially enables one to introduce coordinates in V analogous to the ‘natural coordinates’ zi of a vector LY = (x1, .

If A is invertible, the solution of AX = Y is X = A-‘Y. Conversely, suppose AX = Y has a solution for each given Y. Let R be a row-reduced echelon matrix which is row- 23 24 Chap. 1 Linear Equations equivalent to A. We wish to show that R = I. That that the last row of R is not (identically) 0. Let Es amounts to showing 0 0 i. 0 [I 1 If the system RX = E can be solved for X, the last row of R cannot be 0. We know that R = PA, where P is invertible. Thus RX = E if and only if AX = P-IE. According to (iii), the latter system has a solution.

Pm. Then any independent set of vectors in V is jinite and contains no more than m elements. Proof. To prove the theorem it suffices to show that every subset X of V which contains more than m vectors is linearly dependent. Let S be such a set. In S there are distinct vectors (~1, Q, . . , (Y, where n > m. Since pl, . . , Pm span V, there exist scalars Aij in F such that For any n scalars x1, x2, . . , x, we have XlLyl + . . l Since n > m, Theorem 6 of Chapter a, x2, . . , xn not all 0 such that 5 Aijxj=O, = i j=l XjcUj 1 implies that there exist scalars l*
