Homework 10 - Solutions 5.1 Problem 10 If A is upper-triangular, then so is A λI , and the determinant of a such a matrix is the product of the diagonal entries. 5.1 Problem 11 (a) Since A is similar to a scalar matrix λ I, there exists an invertible matrix S, such that A = S - 1 ( λI ) S = λS - 1 IS = λS - 1 S = λI (b) Since A is a diagonalizable matrix with only one eigenvalue λ , there exists an invertible matrix Q, such that A = Q - 1 ( λI ) Q Using (a), the proof is complete. 5.1 Problem 14 Use the fact that det( B )=det( B t ) for any square matrix B . Apply to the case B = A λI 5.1 Problem 18 (a) Since B is invertible, det( B - 1 ) 6 =0,and det( A + cB )= det( B - 1 ( A + cB )) det( B - 1 ) Let ˜ A = B - 1 A ,c=- λ ,thendet( A + cB )=0iF det( B - 1 A + cI ˜ A λI )=0 This is an equation over the ±eld C , hence it always has at least one root, i.e there exists a c =( 1) λ C such that det( B - 1 A + cI ˜ A λI This implies that det( A + cB ) = 0 and hence A + cB is not invertible. g 1
