M n such that (mP, m) is the center of mass of the mass-points ( m o P o , m O) ..... ,mj j=O 1 32 CHAPTER 1 Introduction: Foundations The barycentric coordinates of P are given by ilk= mk n Zmj j=0 It is easy to check that indeed /7 P = ~,~kPk. k=0 Notice, however, that the barycentric coordinates ~k are unique, but the masses mk are defined only up to constant multiples. We shall most often apply barycentric coordinates in one and two dimensions, so let us now get a feel for these new coordinates by computing explicit formulas for them in low dimensions.

3. Show that a Grassmann space can always be embedded in an affine space of the same dimension. ) 4. Consider a system of homogenized linear equations: allX 1 + al2x 2 + ... + alnX n = blw amlxl + am2X 2 + ... + amnX n = bmw . We can rewrite these equations in matrix notation as AX = B w . a. Show that the solutions ( X , w ) of this homogenized system of linear equations form a Grassmann space. b. What are the points with unit mass? c. What are the vectors? 5. Define the product of two elements of Grassmann space by setting (mlPl,ml)~ = mlm2(P2 - P1) (raP, m) 9(v, O) = m v m :/: 0 (v, O) 9(mP, m) = - m v m r 0 (v, O) 9(w, O) = 0 .

Since P1 and P2 are distinct points in affine space, the vectors (PI,1) and (P2,1) in Grassmann space are linearly independent, so (1 - a ) 2 , - m1 a~=m 2 . Adding these equations and solving first for 2 and then for a yields - m 1 + m2 a - m 2 /(m l + m2) . It follows that the sum of the arrows generates the vector (P,1) = ((mlP1 + mzP2)/(m 1 + m2),l ) scaled by the mass 2 - m 1 + m 2. Thus the projection of the arrow ml(Pl,1)+ m2(P2,1) back into affine space gives the point in affine space corresponding to the addition of the original mass-points (center of mass), and the scale factor is the sum of the original masses.
