(d) The elementary divisors of A are linear. 8.7.5. Recall that a matrix N is nilpotent if N k D for some k , Let A 2 Mat n .K/ , and suppose that the characteristic polynomial of A factors into linear factors in Kx . Show that A is the sum of two matrices A D A C N , where A is diagonalizable, N is nilpotent, and A N D NA . 8.7.6. Let N 2 Mat n .K/ be a nilpotent matrix. (a) Show that N has characteristic polynomial N .x/ D x n . (b) Show that the Jordan canonical form of N is a direct sum of Jordan blocks J m .0/ ....
