8.7. JORDAN CANONICAL FORM 419 (c) Show that the trace of N is zero. (d) Show that the Jordan canonical form of N is the same as the rational canonical form of N . 8.7.7. Classify nilpotent matrices in Mat n .K/ up to similarity. Hint: What are the possible Jordan canonical forms? 8.7.8. Let K be a ﬁeld of arbitrary characteristic, and suppose that ± is a primitive n -th root of unity in K ; that is ± n D 1 , and ± s ¤ 1 for any s < n . Let S denote the n –by– n permutation matrix corresponding to the permutation .1;2;3; ±±± ;n/ . For example, for n D 5 , S D 2 6 6 6 6 4 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 3 7 7 7 7 5 (a) Show that S is similar in Mat n .K/ to the diagonal matrix D with diagonal entries 1;±;± 2 ;:::;± n ± 1 .
