Quiz #4 1. Label the following statements as being true or false. (a) Any two eigenvectors are linearly independent. (Solution) False. Consider an constant multiple of an eigenvec- tor. (b) Similar matrices always have the same eigenvalues. (Solution) True. Similar matrices have the same characteristic polynomial. (c) Similar matrices always have the same eigenvectors. (Solution) False. Let A = Q - 1 BQ for some Q . Then every eigenvector of A is of the form Q - 1 v for some eigenvector of B . Similarly, every eigenvector of B is of the form Qv for some eigenvector of A . (d) A linear operator T on a finite-dimensional vector space is di- agonalizable if and only if the multiplicity of each eigenvalue λ equals the dimension of E λ . (Solution) False. In addition, the sum of all dimension of E λ ’s must be equal to the dimension of the vector space. (e) A linear operator T : V V on a finite dimensional vector space V is diagonalizable if and only if
