Topic: Replacement Theorem


1/ If V has a finite basic β1, then any other basic β2 of V is also finite and |β1|=|β2|

2/ "dim V" makes sense

dim V = |β| if V has a finite basic β

Otherwise, dim V =

ex: dim P(F)=

3/ Assume dim V = n < then,

a) If G generate V then |G| n & some set of G is a basic of V. ( If |G|= n, itself is a basic)

b) If L is linearly independent then |L| n, if |L|=n then L is a basic, if |L|< n then L can be extended to become a basic.


1) β2 generate and β1 is linearly independent

From replacement theorem

|β2| |β1| , ( role reversal), |β1| |β2|

Then |β2|= |β1|

3) a) (|G| n)

by dim V = n, exist basic β of V with n elements, Take L = β in the replacement lemma, |G| = n1

|L| n1= |G|

Hence n |G|
