    Let V=L2[-1,1] be the Hilbert space of functions over the time interval [-1,1] with inner product

    Let P5 V be the subspace of polynomials of order 4 or less, endowed with the inner product and norm of V, and let , be its natural basis. Define a linear transformation S as

    Show that the subspace P5 is invariant under S. That is, verify that S maps members of P5 back into P5. Define T as the restriction of S to P5. (This part is already done. So I just send it for information.)

    The matrix representation of T is below;

    My question is:

    And, if we define y(t) as

    y(t)=1 + t + t2 + t3 + t4 what is the optimal value of that solves the approximation problem?

    (Hint: T in min operator is not the matrix defined above. But, it is the operator defined above as Sx. So wherever we see S we can use T. (Sx=Tx) And U is just the space of polynomials.)
