    Implications of unitary matrix with sub-blocks of matrices

    If we consider some unitary operator in matrix form given by $ U = \left[ {\begin{array}{cc} P_{00} & P_{01} \cdot \cdot & P_{0J} \\ P_{10} & \\ \cdot &\\ \cdot\\ P_{J0} \cdot\cdot\cdot& & P_{JJ} \\ \end{array} } \right]$ Where each $P_{nm}$ are matrices (sub-blocks of...

    Fourier-Series, where is my mistake?

    Hello, I've got a piecewise defined, 4-periodic function . I have calculated the coefficients as seen in the pictures . The problem is, when I plot the Fourier series , it seems not to be correct, as you can see in this picture (blue: Fourier series, black: actual function): I am looking...

    Numerical Analysis

    Hi , Can anyone check for me if I'm doing correctly calculations based on 2 equations? Especially an integral because I don't really know how should I compute it. I'm calculating it in microsoft office excel (I've got those equations from scientific paper, and I don't really know if there is a...

    Prove: If f(A-B) = f(A)-f(B), then f is injective.

    Book: Mathematical Analysis by Apostol Theorem 2.2:(a,b) = (c,d) \iff a = c \text{ and } b = d. A - B = \{ x: x\in A, \text{ but } x \notin B\} Let f: X \rightarrow Y. Prove that if f(A-B) = f(A) - f(B) \text {for all } A,B \subseteq X \text{, then } f \text{ is injective.} My...

    Help understanding this proof: E is a subset of f^(-1)(f(E))

    \text{Let } f: X\rightarrow Y, \text{ where } X \text{ and } Y \text{ are sets.} \text{Prove that }E \subseteq f^{-1}(f(E)) \text{ } \forall E \subseteq X. PROOF: \text{Let } x \in E. \text{Then, }y = f(x) \in f(E), \text{ so } x \in f^{-1}(f(E)). \text{ Hence } E \subseteq f^{-1}(f(E)) How...

    Numerical analysis- fixed point iteration method

    Q. Compute by the method of fixed point iteration a real root of the equation x^3 + x^2 - 1 =0 correct up to two decimal places. In the above problem if we take f(x)=0, then to solve it we can write f(x) in the form of x=g(x). Now g(x) can take three different forms. i) 1/sqrt(1+x) ii)...

    Analysis: show xn is a null sequence

    Prove that x_{n+1}-1/2x_n\to 0 \Rightarrow x_n\to 0. My approach: Let \varepsilon>0. Then there exists an N\in \Bbb N s.t. \forall n\geq N, |x_{n+1}-1/2x_n|<\varepsilon. It follows that -\varepsilon\leq -\varepsilon+1/2x_n<x_{n+1}<\varepsilon \leq \varepsilon+1/2x_n. Then for any n\geq N, we...

    Interval of Convergence for differing odd/even coefficients of power series

    Hello, I am studying for a midterm this week. One of the practice problems is to find the radius of convergence of \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} a_n x^n where a_n = 5^n if n is odd and a_n = 1/3^n if n is even. It took me a while to hazard a guess that I take the smaller of the two radii? Then a =...

    Complex Analysis Singularities

    I've found that the singularities for the complex function $\frac{1}{cos(1-\frac{1}{z})}$ are $z=0$ and $z=\frac{2}{2-(2k+1)\pi}$ where $k\in\mathbb{C}$ but how do you know what kind of singularity they are? (i.e. poles, removable singularities or essential singularities) Any help would be much...
