MATH 108 B FALL 2011 EXTRA-CREDIT PROBLEMS SHOW YOUR WORK CLEARLY. –1) Let A be a n × n skew-Hermitian matrix ( A * = A T = - A ). Prove: (a) The eigenvalues of A are pure imaginary, and eigenvectors corresponding to diﬀerent eigenvalues are orthogonal. (we recall that if x, y C n , then h x,y i = x T y = n j =1 x j y j ) (b) Prove that ( I - A ) and ( I + A ) are invertible. Typeset by A M S -T E X 1
