12 Jan.    Finish up 4.1; start 5.1.

4.1:  exer's  4, 6 (vectors u, v in |R^n
are "parallel" iff one of them is a scalar multiple of
the other), 8.(a), (c), 10, 11

15 Jan.    Continue with section 5.1.  Maybe start 5.2.

5.1:  exer's 1.(b), 4, 5, 6. (c), (d), (h)

17 Jan.    Section 5.2:  Subspaces, spanning sets, linear
combinations.

see Example 7 in 6.1.  Use the fact that
-1    m     -1 m
(P  A P)  =  P  A P  for any pos. integer m, and the
fact that powers of a DIAGONAL matrix are easy to compute.
