Unformatted text preview: Math 17B Kouba Using Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors to Solve Matrix Algebra Problems DERIVE A FORMULA FOR POWERS OF A MATRIX APPLIED TO ITS EIGENVEC- TOR : Let A be a matrix and assume that A is an eigenvalue with eigenvector V . Then AV 2 AV —> A2V = A(AV) = A(AV) = ,\(AV) 2 /\()\V) = AZV _> A3V = A(A2V) = A(A2V) :2 A2(AV) = A2()\V) = A3V ———> A4V : A(A3V) = A()\3V) = A3(AV) : A3()\V) : A4V ——+ (P) AkV—zxkv for k:1,2,3,4,--- USE THE ABOVE FORMULA TO SOLVE THE FOLLOWING PROBLEM : EXAMPLE : Consider matrix A = (—11/2 3721) . It can be shown that it’s eigenvalues are /\1 = 2 and A2 = —1 with eigenvectcors V1 : (i) and V2 2 (35 ), resp. Use the eigenvalues and eigenvectors for matrix A to determine A30 (123) .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
