(a) Let A,B be n n matrices and suppose B = A 1 A T and B is symmetric. Prove that A 2 is symmetric. (b) Suppose C is a real n n matrix such that C is symmetric and C 2 = C and let D = I n 2 C with I n denoting the n n identity matrix. Prove that D is symmetric and orthogonal. 2. (a) Find all complex 2 2 matrices A = [ a ij ] which are both unitary and Hermitian, and have a 11 = 1 / 2. (b) Show that a real 2 2 normal matrix is either symmetric or has the form " a b b a # ( a,b R ). 3. Let Z be an m n complex matrix such that Z * Z = I n where I n denotes the n n identity matrix. (a) Show that H = ZZ * is Hermitian and satisfies H 2 = H . (b) Show that U = I n 2 ZZ * is both unitary and Hermitian. 4. Let A be a complex n n matrix. (a) Show that A = H + K for some Hermitian matrix H and some skewHermitian matrix K ....
