If T : R n R m is a matrix transformation, does T</math depend on the dimensions of R? i.e., is T one-one if m > n, m = n, or n > m?
Also, say if T is one-one, does this mean it is a matrix transformation and hence a linear transformation?

Any matrix transformation T : R n R m is a linear transformation (and vice versa once you've specified bases). If n > m, then T cannot be injective because there cannot be n linearly independent vectors in R m . Finally, if n = m or n < m, one can say nothing about injectivity without more information. For instance, for n = m you have the zero matrix transformation (not injective) and the identity matrix transformation.

I need to find a unique description of Nul A, namely by listing the vectors that measure the null space.

Let A = 4 × 4 matrix: [ 3 2 10 6 1 0 2 4 0 1 2 3 1 4 10 8 ] , let b = 4 × 1 matrix: [ 1 3 1 4 ]
Is b in the range of linear transformation x A x?

Let there be a linear transformation going from R 3 to R 2 , defined by T ( x , y , z ) = ( x + y , 2 z x ). Find the transformation matrix if base 1:
( 1 , 0 , 1 ) , ( 0 , 1 , 1 ) , ( 1 , 0 , 0 ) ,
base 2: ( 0 , 1 ) , ( 1 , 1 )
An attempt at a solution included calculating the transformation on each of the bases in R 3 , (base 1) and then these vectors, in their column form, combined, serve as the transformation matrix, given the fact they indeed span all of B 1 in B 2
Another point: if the basis for R 3 and R 2 are the standard basis for these spaces, the attempt at a solution is a correct answer.

If we have a matrices
A=[abcd] and e12(λ)=[1λ01]
then by doing product Ae12(λ)=[aaλ+bccλ+d] and e12(λ)A=[a+cλb+dλcd]
we can interpret that right multiplication by e12 to A gives a column-operation: add λ-times first column to the second column. In similar way, left multiplication by e12(λ) to A gives row-operation on A.
Is there any conceptual (not computational, if any) way to see that elementary row and column operations on a matrix can be expressed as multiplication by elementary matrices on left or right, accordingly?
