Use the following exercises to review and test your understanding of the material in Chapter 2. This is not homework, and there is nothing to hand in from this activity.

*Lay, Supplementary Exercises, Chapter 2, pp. 183--184 --*2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11 (Vandermonde matrices and interpolating polynomials), 12, 13, 14 (Householder reflection), 19, 20

These additional review exercises from Lay Chapter 2 focus on more theoretical aspects of this material. They generally require proofs or a more sophisticated understanding of the theory of linear algebra.
