Solution: The characteristic polynomial is C ( ) = det( R - I ) = cos - - sin sin cos - = 2- 2 cos + 1 Hence, by the quadratic formula, we have = 2 cos 4 cos 2 - 4 2 = cos p- sin 2 = cos i sin Observe, that if sin = 0, then R is diagonal, so we could just take P = I . So, we now assume that sin 6 = 0. For 1 = cos + i sin , we get R - 1 I =- i sin - sin sin - i sin 1- i We get that an eigenvector of 1 is i 1 . Similarly, for 2 = cos - i sin , we get R - 2 I = i sin - sin sin i sin 1 i 0 0 We get that an eigenvector of 1 is- i 1 . Thus, P = i- i 1 1 and D = cos + i sin cos - i sin . b) Verify your answer in a) is correct, by showing the matrix P and diagonal matrix D from part a) satisfy P- 1 R P = D for = 0 and = 4 . Solution: We have R = 1 0 0 1 which is already diagonal, so R is diagonalized by P = I as we stated in a)....
