(a) If A is diagonalizable and B is similar to A , then B is also diagonalizable. (b) If A have distinct eigenvalues then A is diagonalizable. (c) If the eigenvalues of A are not distinct, then A is not diagonalizable. (d) If A and B are both diagonalizable with the same diagonalizing matrix, then AB = BA . 1...
