This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the twelfth Portuguese convention on synthetic Intelligence, EPIA 2005, held in Covilhã, Portugal in December 2005 as 9 built-in workshops. The fifty eight revised complete papers provided have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from a complete of 167 submissions. in response to the 9 constituting workshops, the papers are geared up in topical sections on basic man made intelligence (GAIW 2005), affective computing (AC 2005), synthetic existence and evolutionary algorithms (ALEA 2005), development and utilizing ontologies for the semantic net (BAOSW 2005), computational equipment in bioinformatics (CMB 2005), extracting wisdom from databases and warehouses (EKDB&W 2005), clever robotics (IROBOT 2005), multi-agent platforms: idea and functions (MASTA 2005), and textual content mining and functions (TEMA 2005).

We will see some more applications of Householder matrices in Chapter 3. 5 VECTOR SPACES Although vector spaces can be very general, we restrict our attention to vector spaces in finite dimensions, and unless otherwise stated, we will always consider the scalars to be real numbers. We know that if we add, subtract, multiply, or divide (except division by zero) two real numbers, we get a real number again.

Rank(23). --Abn]. ) < rank(^4). The second inequality is proved similarly using rows. (b) If B is nonsingular, we have rank(A) = mnkiABB'1) < rank(AjB). 38 BASICS OF LINEAR ALGEBRA By combining this with the first inequality in (a), we conclude that ra,nk(AB) = rank(A). The proof of the last statement is similar. □ We now define the null space of A, denoted as N(A). 45 The null space of a matrix Am x n is defined as the vector subspace of R n : N(A) = {x e Rn : Ax = 0 } . 57 1 2 From the definition, we see that the null space is the set 2 4 3 6 {[xi X2 xs]T : x\ + 2x2 + 3^3 = 0}.

That is, any vector in col(^4) (in particular, the third and fourth columns of ^4) can be expressed as a unique combination of columns 1, 2, and 5. This means that geometrically, col(A) is a 3-dimensional hyperplane (in M4) spanned by those three columns, and therefore N(A) is a two-dimensional subspaceof M5. As stated before, one of the applications of column spaces, row spaces, and null spaces is in the solution of linear systems. We can now put together the links between the solution of Ax = b and the vector spaces col(^4) and N(A) in a theorem.
