We want the diagonal entries of the result- ing matrix to be monic polynomials, but this only requires some additional row operations of type two (multiplying a row by unit in KOExŁ .) We can compute invertible matrices P and Q such that P.xE n A/Q D D.x/ D diag .1; 1; : : : ; 1; a 1 .x/; a 2 .x/; : : : ; a s .x//; where the a i .x/ are monic and a i .x/ divides a j .x/ for i j . The poly- nomials a i .x/ are the invariant factors of T , so they are all we need in order to write down the rational canonical form of T . But we can actually compute a basis of V with respect to which the matrix of T is in rational canonical form.

### 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.
