If someone could read through and see what they get, that would be a massive help. Thanks. Question: consider the matrix K = (2 0 1; 5 7 0; 3 1 1). Recall the definition of projector operator: P(A)B = A /||A||^2 on a matrix space with inner product <.,.> Compute the matrix: M = (1-P(1))K, according to the inner product = Tr(A'S'SB) Here 1 is the identity matrix, S is the diagonal matrix with diagonal entries (1,2,1). Also A' means A transpose, I wasn't sure how to write it. And P(A)B for the projector operator is P subscript A, B. So I expanded the brackets and used the projector operator to come to K - 1(Tr(1'S'SK))||1||^2 From there I worked the trace part to be 31, and then norm of the identity to be 6. This meant the matrix M came out to: M = (-184 0 1; 5 -179 0; 3 1 -185) Please help and let me know if I've gone wrong. Last edited by skipjack; May 18th, 2017 at 06:23 PM.

So K is $\begin{bmatrix} 2 & 0 & 1 \\ 5 & 7 & 0 \\ 3 & 1 & 1\end{bmatrix}$
and its transpose is $\begin{bmatrix}2 & 5 & 3 \\ 0 & 7 & 1 \\ 1 & 0 & 1 \end{bmatrix}$

S is $\begin{bmatrix}1 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 2 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 \end{bmatrix}$ and, since S is a diagonal matrix, S' is the same.

1'S'SK= S^2K which is $\begin{bmatrix}1 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 4 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1\end{bmatrix}\begin{bmatrix} 2 & 0 & 1 \\ 5 & 7 & 0 \\ 3 & 1 & 1\end{bmatrix}$= $\begin{bmatrix}2 & 0 & 1 \\ 20 & 28 & 0 \\ 3 & 1 & 1 \end{bmatrix}$

Yes, that has trace 21.

The "norm" is the square root of the inner product of a matrix with itself so, using this inner product, The inner product of the identity with itself is trace of IS'SI= S^2, 1+ 4+ 1= 6.

Looks to me like you are correct.
