Let V = P3 be the vector space of polynomials
a0 + a1x + a2x^2 + a3x^3
og degree smaller than or equal to 3. Let the standard basis be:
E = (1, x , x^2, x^3) and let another basis for V be:
G = (1, (2x + 1), (2x + 1)^2, (2x + 1)^3)
How do I find the transition matrix from G to E?
Wow, thanks alot! I'm now trying to find the transition matrix from E to G, and using your example I got:
B[1] = [1]E = g1
B[x] = [x]E = -1/2g1 + 1/2g2
B[x^2] = [x^2]E = 1/4g1 - 1/2g2 + 1/4g3
B[x^3] = [x^3]E = -1/8g1 + 3/8g2 - 3/8g3 + 1/8g4
which would give the matrix B =
1,-1/2, 1/4, -1/8
0, 1/2, -1/2,3/8
0, 0, 1/4,-3/8
0, 0, 0, 1/8
