Exercise10

Consider the matrix

\begin{equation*} A = \left[\begin{array}{rrrr} -1 \amp 1 \amp 0 \amp 0 \\ 1 \amp -2 \amp 1 \amp 0 \\ 0 \amp 1 \amp -2 \amp 1 \\ 0 \amp 0 \amp -1 \amp 1 \\ \end{array}\right]\text{.} \end{equation*}
  1. Find the \(LU\) factorization of \(A\text{.}\)

  2. Use the factorization to find a basis for \(\nul(A)\text{.}\)

  3. We have seen that \(\nul(A) = \nul(U)\text{.}\) Is it true that \(\col(A) = \col(L)\text{?}\)
