Problem Session for MTH G131: 10/12/06 1). Find eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the matrix A = 3 - 5 2 - 3 Use your result to find the solution of the following ODE: d dt x y = A x y , x (0) y (0) = 1 2 2). For a 2 × 2 matrix A with eigenvalues λ 1 and λ 2 show that Trace( A ) = λ 1 + λ 2 , Det( A ) = λ 1 λ 2 3). Suppose the 2 × 2 matrix A has distinct real eigenvalues 0 < λ 1 < λ 2 , with eigenvectors v 1 and v 2 . Show that for most vectors w lim n →∞ λ - 1 2 A n w c v 2 for some constant c . For which vectors w is this result false? 4). Consider the 2 × 2 matrix A = 0 1 1 0 Compute
