Show that if A has a full set of eigenvectors (i.e. any eigenvalue λ with multiplicity k has k corresponding linearly independent eigenvectors), it can be written as A = QΛQ- 1 where Λ is a diagonal matrix of A ’s eigenvalues and Q ’s columns are A ’s eigenvectors. Hint: show that AQ = QΛ and that Q is invertible. 3. If A is symmetric show that any two eigenvectors corresponding to different eigenvalues are orthogonal. 4. If A is symmetric show that it has a full set of eigenvectors. Hint: If ( λ , q ) is an eigenvalue, eigenvector ( q normalized) pair and λ is of multiplicity k > 1, show that A- λ qq T has an eigenvalue of λ with multiplicity k- 1. To show that consider the Householder matrix H such that Hq = e 1 and note that HAH- 1 = HAH and A are similar....
