8.6. RATIONAL CANONICAL FORM 397 and only if, the KOExŁ –modules determined by these linear transformations are isomorphic as KOExŁ –modules. Let V 1 denote V endowed with the KOExŁ –module structure derived from T 1 and let V 2 denote V endowed with the KOExŁ –module structure derived from T 2 . Suppose U W V 1 ! V 2 is a KOExŁ –module isomorphism; then U is a vector space isomorphism satisfying T 2 .Uv/ D x.Uv/ D U.xv/ D U.T 1 v/ . It follows that T 2 D U T 1 U 1 . Conversely, suppose that U is an invertible linear transformation such that T 2 D U T 1 U 1 . It follows that for all f .x/ 2 KOExŁ , f .T 2 / D Uf .T 1 /U 1 ; equivalently, f .T 2 /Uv D Uf .T 1 /v for all v 2 V But this means that U is a KOExŁ –module isomorphism from V 1 to V 2 . n Rational canonical form for matrices Let A be an n –by– n matrix over a field K . Let T be the linear trans- formation of K n determined by left multiplication by A , T .v/ D Av for v 2 K n . Thus, A is the matrix of T with respect to the standard basis of K n . A second matrix A 0 is similar to A if, and only if, A 0 is the matrix of T with respect to some other ordered basis. Exactly one such matrix is in rational canonical form, according to Theorem

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
