2.6, 2.9, 2.12a-e, 2.15, 2.24a, 2.25, and 2.28.
Hint for 2.28: A symmetric matrix is positive semidefinite if and
only if all principal minors (determinants of submatrices obtained
by selecting the same subset of rows and columns) are nonnegative.

3.36(a,d), 3.42, 3.49a-c, 4.8a-e, 4.15, 4.17, A3.4, A13.3.
Homework 4, due Friday 2/6/15:
5.1, 5.13, A2.27, A3.18, A3.26, A4.1.
Homework 5, due Friday 2/13/15:

Homework 7, due Friday 2/27/15:
9.30 + A8.3, A3.20, A5.15, A11.4, A13.14, and A17.3.
Homework 8 (last one), due Tuesday 3/10/15:
A9.5, A16.1, A17.1, and A3.31.
Note for A9.5: Python users should avoid using numpy.linalg.pinv and instead use numpy.linalg.lstsq because matrices with high condition numbers may be encountered.
