Unformatted text preview: B ˙ ILKENT UNIVERSITY Department of Mathematics MATH 225, LINEAR ALGEBRA and DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS, Solution of Homework set 1 # 21 U. Mu˘gan July 4, 2008 Homework problems from the 2 nd Edition, SECTION 6.2 15 (15) ) 2 The characteristic eq. p ( λ ) =- λ 3 + 2 λ 2- λ =- λ ( λ- 1) 2 = 0 . Therefore, the eigenvalues are λ 1 = 0 , λ 2 = 1 , λ 3 = 1 . The eigenvectors for λ 1 = 0: 3 v 11- 3 v 12 + v 13 = 0 2 v 11- 2 v 12 + v 13 = 0 v 13 = 0 ~v 1 =   1 1   For λ 2 = 1: 2 v 21- 3 v 22 + v 23 = 0 2 v 21- 3 v 22 + v 23 = 0 0 = 0 The eigenspace of λ 2 = 1 is 2-dimensional. If we let v 22 = 0 and v 23 = 2 we obtain ~v 2 =  - 1 2   and if we let v 22 = 2 and v 23 = 0 we obtain ~v 3 =   3 2   . Therefore, P =   1- 1 3 1 2 2   , D =   0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1   . 1 I made every effort to avoid the calculation errors and/or typos while I prepared the solution set.
