Math 601 HOMEWORK 6 Solve the problems 1. , 2. below, and also from Strang, 3rd ed., problems 5.2.1, 5.2.3, 5.2.5, 5.2.6, 5.2.7 on p. 260-261 (see the .pdf file handed out in connection to HW 5). 1. Consider an n × n matrix M with entries in F ( = R or C ) with eigenvalues λ 1 ,...,λ n in F . Definition 1. The set V λ j = { x F n | M x = λ j x } is called the eigenspace of M associated to the eigenvalue λ j . a) Show that V λ j is the null space of the transformation M - λ j I . b) Show that V λ j is a subspace of F n . c) Are all the vectors in V λ j eigenvectors of M ? Definition 2. A subspace V is called an an invariant subspace for M if M ( V ) V (which means that for any

Show that M is diagonalizable in F n if and only if V 1 ... V k = F n and explain why the sum before is a direct sum. 2. Find the eigenspaces of the matrix A = 2 1 0 2 Is the matrix diagonalizable? 1...
