## Study Notes

### The Unifying Theorem

- Let S be a set of n vectors in R^n, and A be a matrix with transformation T: R^n -> R^n defined by T(x) = Ax.
- Transformation T is both onto (surjective) and one-to-one (injective), indicating a bijective relationship.
- Set S spans R^n, confirming that every vector in R^n can be expressed as a linear combination of vectors in S.
- Set S is linearly independent, establishing that no vector in S can be formed from others in the set.
- Set S acts as a basis for R^n, fulfilling both spanning and independence criteria.
- The equation Ax = b has a unique solution, affirming that every b in R^n corresponds to exactly one x.
- Matrix A is invertible, which signifies that it has an inverse A^(-1).
- The kernel of T (ker(T)) equals the null space of A (null(A)), and is {0}, confirming that the only solution to Ax = 0 is the trivial solution.
- Nullity of A is 0, indicating there are no free variables in the system.
- The column space (col(A)) equals the range of A, which is R^n, confirming full rank.
- The row space (row(A)) is also R^n, indicating the rows of A span the space.
- The rank of matrix A is n, meaning it has full rank and all n rows/columns are linearly independent.
- The determinant of A is non-zero (det(A) != 0), confirming that the matrix is full rank and invertible.
- Eigenvalue condition: Î» = 0 is not an eigenvalue of matrix A, indicating no solutions for Ax = 0 beyond the trivial solution.
