1)
Show that A is selfadjoint under the complex Euclidean inner product.
2)
Find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of A.
3)
Show that eigenvectors are mutually orthogonal.
3.
Consider the following threedimensional stress condition at a point in a structure.

=0 MPa,
xz
=60 MPa,
y

100 MPa,
yz
=0 MPa,
z
=140 MPa
Then, the stress condition is described as a symmetric matrix to satisfy force equilibrium as follows:

1)
Find the principal stresses and the orientation of principal axes of stress by solving the eigenvalue problem.
(Hint: principal stresses are eigenvalues of A, and principle axes are corresponding eigenvectors.)
2)
The material used for the structure is known to fail at the tensile stress of 190 MPa. Will this structure fail
under the given stress condition? (Hint: Compare the principle stresses with the material strength (190
