[Hence, both AB and BA are defined and square, but not necessarily of the same size.] Show that tr ( AB ) = tr ( BA ). If C and D are square matrices of the same size which are similar, show that tr ( C ) = tr ( D ). [ tr ( C ) is the trace of C , that is, the sum of the entries on the diagonal.] 2. For each of the following matrices A j ( j = 1 , 2 , 3) over the real numbers, (a) find all the eigenvalues of A j ; (b) find a basis for each eigenspace; (c) find the minimal polynomial min A j and the characteristic polynomial χ A j ; (d) find — if possible — an invertible matrix P j such that P 1 j A j P j is invertible. If this is not possible, explain why. (e) Find A 11 1 . (2 11 = 2048 and 3 11 = 177147.) A 1 =  7 5 5 4 2 1 6 6 7 , A 2 = 3 2 3 10 3 5 5 4 7 , A 3 = 6 4 1 4 6 1 4...
