This module discusses the different types of basis that leads up to the definition of an orthonormal basis. Examples are given and the useful of the orthonormal basis is discussed.

Normalized basis

Normalized Basis
a basis b i where each b i has unit norm
i i b i 1
The concept of basis applies to all vector spaces . The concept of normalized basis applies only to normed spaces .
You can always normalize a basis: just multiply each basis vector by a constant, such as 1 b i

We are given the following basis: b 0 b 1 1 1 1 -1 Normalized with 2 norm: b ~ 0 1 2 1 1 b ~ 1 1 2 1 -1 Normalized with 1 norm: b ~ 0 1 2 1 1 b ~ 1 1 2 1 -1

Orthogonal basis

Orthogonal Basis
a basis b i in which the elements are mutually orthogonal i i j b i b j 0
The concept of orthogonal basis applies only to Hilbert Spaces .

Standard basis for 2 , also referred to as 2 0 1 : b 0 1 0 b 1 0 1 b 0 b 1 i 1 0 b 0 i b 1 i 1 0 0 1 0

Orthonormal basis

Pulling the previous two sections (definitions) together, we arrive at the most important and useful basis type:

Orthonormal Basis
a basis that is both normalized and orthogonal i i b i 1 i i j b i b j
We can shorten these two statements into one: b i b j δ i j where δ i j 1 i j 0 i j Where δ i j is referred to as the Kronecker delta function and is also often written as δ i j .

Beauty of orthonormal bases

Orthonormal bases are very easy to deal with! If b i is an orthonormal basis, we can write for any x

x i α i b i
It is easy to find the α i :
x b i k α k b k b i k α k b k b i
where in the above equation we can use our knowledge of thedelta function to reduce this equation: b k b i δ i k 1 i k 0 i k
x b i α i
Therefore, we can conclude the following important equation for x :
x i x b i b i
The α i 's are easy to compute (no interaction between the b i 's)

Given the following basis: b 0 b 1 1 2 1 1 1 2 1 -1 represent x 3 2

Slightly modified fourier series

We are given the basis n 1 T ω 0 n t on L 2 0 T where T 2 ω 0 . f t n f ω 0 n t ω 0 n t 1 T Where we can calculate the above inner product in L 2 as f ω 0 n t 1 T t T 0 f t ω 0 n t 1 T t T 0 f t ω 0 n t

Orthonormal basis expansions in a hilbert space

Let b i be an orthonormal basis for a Hilbert space H . Then, for any x H we can write

x i α i b i
where α i x b i .
  • "Analysis": decomposing x in term of the b i
    α i x b i
  • "Synthesis": building x up out of a weighted combination of the b i
    x i α i b i

other things remaining same if demend is increases supply is also decrease and if demend is decrease supply is also increases is called the demand
if the demand increase supply also increases
you are wrong this is the law of demand and not the definition
Demand is the willingness of buy and ability to buy in a specific time period in specific place. Mian you are saying law of demand but not in proper way. you have to keep studying more. because its very basic things in Economics.

Please, what is the difference between monopoly and monopsony?
Olaleye Reply
is there monopsony word?
I have no idea though
please, in which year Adam smith was born?
monopsony is when there's only one buyer while monopoly is when there's only one producer.
who have idea on Banter
like trade by barter?
Monopoly is when there's excessively one seller and there is no entry in the market while monopsony is when there is one buyer

what is market power and how can it affect an economy?
Gab Reply
market power:- where a firm is said to be a price setter.market power benefits the powerful at the expense of others.
Market power refers to the ability of a firm (or group of firms) to raise and maintain price above the level that would prevail under competition is referred to as market or monopoly power. The exercise of market power leads to reduced output and loss of economic welfare
