Verify that the trace equals the sum of the eigenvalues, and the determinant equals their product. 5.1.2 With the same matrix A, solve the differential equation du/dt = Au, uo = [2].

What are the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of B, and how are they related to those of A?

Give an example to show that the eigenvalues can be changed when a multiple of one row is subtracted from another. Suppose that ,l is an eigenvalue of A, and x is its eigenvector: Ax = Ax. (a) Show that this same x is an eigenvector of B = A — 71, and ﬁnd the eigenvalue. This should conﬁrm Exercise 5.1.3. (b) Assuming 1. ¢ 0, show that x is also an eigenvector of A"'—and ﬁnd the eigenvalue. Show that the determinant equals the product of the eigenvalues by imagining that the characteristic polynomial is factored into det(A - 11) = (11 - M12 - l) ' ' ' (1.. - l). (15) and making a clever choice of A. Show that the trace equals the sum of the eigenvalues, in two steps. First, ﬁnd the coefﬁcient oft—A)” 1 on the right side of (15).

(b) Verify however that the sum of the eigenvalues of A + B equals the sum of all the individual eigenvalues of A and B, and similarly for products. Why is this true? Prove that A and AT have the same eigenvalues, by comparing their characteristic polynomials. Find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of A = [i -3] and A = [Z If B has eigenvalues I, 2, 3 and C has eigenvalues 4, 5, 6, and D has eigenvalues 7, 8, 9, what are the eigenvalues of the 6 by 6 matrix A = [g 5]?

What are the rank and eigenvalues when A and C in the previous exercise are n by n? Remember that the eigenvalue ,1 = 0 is repeated n — r times. If A is the 4 by 4 matrix of ones, ﬁnd the eigenvalues and the determinant of A — I (compare Ex. 4.3.10). Choose the third row of the “companion matrix” 0 l O A = O 0 1 so that its characteristic polynomial |A — AI| is —/l3 + 4/12 + 5.1 + 6. Suppose the matrix A has eigenvalues 0, I, 2 with eigenvectors no, 01, 02. Describe the nullspace and the column space. Solve the equation Ax = 01 + v2. Show that Ax = 00 has no solution. 4.4.1 6 4.4.17 5.1.2 5.1.4 5.1.7 5.1.8 5.1.9 5.1.12 5.1.14 5.1.15 5.1.18 5.2.1 5.2.4 5.25 5.2.6 5.2.8 5.2.9 5.2.12 5.2.14 Solutions to Selected Exercises 483 The power of 'P are all permutation matrices so eventually one must be repeated.
