    How can I find the resultant and norm from pair of vectors passing in half a circle?

    I've been walking in circles (no pun intended) with this problem. It states as follows: A certain sugar is analyzed at an optical laboratory. The tecnician passes two beams in the visible spectra one orange and the other lightblue. These describe the vectors labeled A and B (see the figure...

    Upper bound on smallest field norm divisible by p

    Let $K$ be a number field, $p$ a prime ideal, $N(p)$ the norm of $p$, $P$ a principal ideal and $N(P)$ the norm of $P$. What are the (reasonable) upper bounds for the smallest $N(P)$ such that $N(p) | $N(P)$? Thanks for help.

    Where is the problem?? Norm residue symbol

    Hello Let $p$ be a rational prime such that $p\equiv 3\mod 8$ and let $\mathfrak p$ the unique prime ideal of $\mathbb{Q}(i)$ laying over $p$. Applying the norm residue properties i get : 1) $\left(\frac{2,p}{\mathfrak p}\right)=\left(\frac{2}{\mathfrak p}\right)^{v_{\mathfrak p}(p)}=...

    Vectors and Norm

    Hello, Im learning Calculus in CS so I have couple questions on vectors. 1. vector -v = [v1,v2] ; and need to proof - 1/ ||v|| * v =1 so 1/||v|| is a scalar according the formula - ||v*t|| = |t|* ||v|| || (1/ ||v||) * v || = | (1/ ||v||) | * || v|| (1/ ||v||) * || v||...

    Proof concerning eigenvalue and matrix norm.

    Hi, I am struggling with the following proof. I think I know how to prove the right hand side inequality |lambda| <= ||A||, but I still don't know how to prove the left hand side inequality. Could you please give me some hint ? :)

    Vectorial norm help

    Hello, I am new to the forums. I was not sure if this question should be asked in this section, but as the exercise is from my calculus course I have posted it here. Here is the question: Does the function ||(x,y)||=max{|x+y|,|x-y|} define a function in R2? I am having trouble in proving (or...

    how do I prove the existence of this norm?

    I am reading an article[1] that states: Let $\mathbb{K}$ be a fixed local field. Then there is an integer $q=p^r$, where p is a fixed prime element of $\mathbb{K}$ and r is a positive integer, and a norm $\left | . \right |$ on $\mathbb{K}$ such that for all $x\in \mathbb{K}$ we have $\left |...

    Excercise with inner product

    Hello, thank you for accepting me. I am studying mathematics, and I have a problem with an excercise which I don't even know if I have placed it in the correct board. Excercise We know that we can define the norm of a function f via the inner product as follows: ||f||=(f•f)^(1/2) If we...

    Derivative of norm of a Gram matrix's diagonal

    I have a matrix X of size m-by-n. I need to calculate derivative of the following function of X with respect to X: f(X)=||diag(X^TX)||_2^2 where diag() returns diagonal elements of a matrix into a vector. How can I calculate \frac {\partial f(X)} {\partial X}? Please help me. Thanks in...

    Energy norm from Variational formulation (FEM)

    If I've stated a differential equation in a variational (weak) form, is there a general algorithm to yield an expression for the energy norm of the solution? For instance, the problem: \begin{split} -\nabla (a(x,y)\nabla u) &= f,\;\;\;x\,\epsilon\,\Omega \\ u &=...

    norm of proj vs, proj

    hi I am confused, what is the difference between the norm of a projection and a projection ... particularly when apply projections to problems of the distance between a point and a plane. Isn't it enough to find the projection of the vector normal to the plane, on the vector, ( x0-x1...

    Best approximation in norm of f(x)=x

    Hey I am trying to calculate the best approximation of f(x)=x (in norm) using a function of the form a*cos(x) + b*sin(x). The interval is [0, pi]. I am supposed to use fourier theory in order to solve this problem, but I am not sure how. Thanks :)
