18.335 Practice Midterm 1. (5 points) Let A be real symmetric and positive semidefinite, i.e. x T Ax 0 for all x 6 = 0. Show that if the diagonal of A is zero, then A is zero. 2. (5 points) Show that if Y = " I Z 0 I # then κ F ( Y ) = 2 n + k Z k 2 F . 3. Let T = a 1 b 1 c 1 . . . . . . . . . . . . b n - 1 c n - 1 a n be a real, n -by- n , nonsymmetric tridiagonal matrix where c i b i > 0 for all 1 i n - 1. Show that the eigenvalues of T are real (5 points) and distinct (5 points). Hint: Find a diagonal matrix D such that C = DTD - 1 is symmetric. Then argue about the rank of
