Reviewed notes and skimmed through intro material in QFT in a nutshell, decided on a more high-level picture approach to the mathematical prerequisites so I have a sense of "where to look" down the road, focusing on a more "full" notion of understanding when I get to the physics. Read Axler 5.B-6.B.
- 5.B ex 10
Reading to make sure I understood the exercise, had an entational polynomializing and valusing λ factors through.
- 5.41 proof
In paragraph starting "suppose (b) holds", read "invariant under T" and "summoned" a valusing of an eigenvalue out of T
In verifying the linearity of x ↦ x · y, snippets of valusing over dot product definition and the result "looked" linear
- 6.B 13
Experienced an entational array of v1..vn in reading problem statement.
Coining ordiation for the "summoned" "snippets" of mental activity
