Unformatted text preview: λ . The set of all eigenvectors corresponding to an eigenvalue λ , together with the zero vector, is called the eigenspace corresponding to the eigenvalue λ . EXAMPLE. Calculate the following and draw some conclusions and make some guesses. 2 1 31 5 0 0 4 5 1 2 1 31 5 0 0 13 FACT. The eigenvalues of a triangular matrix are the entries on its diagonal. FACT. Eigenvectors that correspond to distinct eigenvalues are linearly independent. WHY? EXAMPLE. Find a basis for the eigenspace corresponding to the eigenvalue λ = 4 for the matrix A = 3 0 2 0 1 3 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 4 . HOMEWORK: SECTION 5.1...
