(a) For any matrix A ∈ R n × n for which I + A is nonsingular, show that ( I A )( I + A ) 1 = ( I + A ) 1 ( I A ) . (1.1) We will write I A I + A for the matrix in (1.1). [Note: In general, AB 1 6 = B 1 A and so A B is ambiguous since it could mean either AB 1 or B 1 A .] (b) Let Q ∈ R n × n be an orthorgonal matrix such that I + Q is nonsingular. Show that I Q I + Q is a skew symmetric matrix. (c) Let S ∈ R n × n be a skew symmetric matrix. Show that I S I + S is an orthogonal matrix. (d) Why is it unnecessary to require that I + S be nonsingular in (c)? [Hint: Problem 3 below.] 2. Let A,B ∈ R n × n . Let λ a ∈ R be an eigenvalue of A and λ b ∈ R be an eigenvalue of B . (a) Is it always true that λ a λ b is an eigenvalue of AB ? Is it always true that λ a + λ b is an eigenvalue of A + B ?...
