Comments:
The proof appears to be correct, but the reviewing committee had
difficulty following the steps of the proof (however, there could be some
wool pulled over our eyes).
INSTRUCTOR'S COMMENT: I agree that this is not the most direct proof that
could be given. I suggest: Write the new vectors as linear combinations
of the old ones; calculate the inner products of the new vectors, knowing
those of the old ones; see what results. This will involve messier
notation (lots of indices) but is more elementary than the published
proof.
