The “untextbook” that teaches scholars to imagine like a sociologist.

You might wonder provides teachers a substitute for the common textbook via emphasizing the “big ideas” of the self-discipline, and inspiring scholars to invite significant questions. Conley employs a “non-textbook” technique of explaining advanced thoughts via own examples and storytelling, and integrates insurance of social inequality through the textual content.

Repeating the above argument, we get But Using the above equation, we see that Because the li are distinct, it must follow that c1 = 0. Using similar arguments, we can show that all ci must vanish, and therefore the set of eigenvectors {v 1 ,v 2 ,... ,vn} is linearly independent. Consider a basis formed by a linearly independent set of eigenvectors {v1,v2, • • •, vn}. , if aij is the (i, j)th element of A, then aij = 0 for all i j). Indeed, let Then, 24 TRANSFORMATIONS because T-1T = I. Let us now consider symmetric matrices.

For any x, we have(Py) T (I-P)x = yTPT(IP)x = yTP(I - P)x = 0 for all y. Thus, (I - P)x e R(P) , which means that P is an orthogonal projector. 4 QUADRATIC FORMS A quadratic form f : Rn —> R is a function where Q is an n x n real matrix. There is no loss of generality in assuming Q to be symmetric, that is, Q = QT. For if the matrix Q is not symmetric, we can always replace it with the symmetric matrix Note that A quadratic form xTQx, Q = QT, is said to be positive definite if xTQx > 0 for all nonzero vectors x.

Do the same for y. 6 to show that the norm || • || is a uniformly continuous function, that is, for all e > 0, there exists d > 0 such that if ||x-y|| < d, then |||x|| — ||y|| < e. 1 LINEAR TRANSFORMATIONS A function : Rn Rm is called a linear transformation if 1. (ax) = a (x) for every x € Rn and a e R; and 2. (x + y) = (x) + (y) for every x, y e Rn. If we fix the bases for Rn and Rm, then the linear transformation £ can be represented by a matrix. Specifically, there exists A e R m x n such that the following representation holds.
