### Largest subset of $GL_n(p)$ in which pairwise subtraction is also in $GL_n(p)$

Suppose $X\subset \mathrm{GL}_n(p)$ is a set of invertible matrices such that for every $A,B\in X$ then also $A-B\in \mathrm{GL}_n(p)\cup \{0\}$. (If anyone knows a name for such sets I would be ...

### Injective Mapping

Let y=Ax. A is a matrix n by m and m>n. Also, x gets its values from a finite alphabet. Elements of A and x can be complex numbers. How can i show if the mapping from x to y is injective for given A ...

### Linear algebra of finite abelian groups

If $f: V \to W$ is a surjective homomorphism of vector spaces, and we have fixed a basis for $V$, it is always possible to find a basis for $W$ such that the matrix associated to $\phi$ in the two ...

### trace of a matrix of finite order

Let $A$ be an $n$ by $n$ real matrix of order $d$. i.e. $d$ is the smallest positive integer greater than $1$ that makes $A^{d}=I_{n}$. The set of trace zero real matrices form $n^{2}-1$ dimensional ...
