Unformatted text preview: MthSc 853 (Linear Algebra) Dr. Macauley HW 8 Due Wednesday, March 16th, 2011 (1) Consider the following matrices: A = 2 2 , B = 2 2 , C = 3 1 1 1 . (a) Determine the characteristic and minimal polynomials of A , B , and C . (b) Determine the eigenvectors and generalized eigenvectors of A , B , and C . (2) Consider the following matrices: A = 2 2 14 3 7 2 , B =  4 85 1 4 30 3 , C = 2 2 1 0 2 1 0 0 3 . A straightforward calculation shows that the characteristic polynomials are p A ( t ) = p B ( t ) = p C ( t ) = ( t 2) 2 ( t 3) . (a) Determine the minimal polynomials m A ( t ), m B ( t ), and m C ( t ). (b) Determine the eigenvectors and generalized eigenvectors of A , B , and C . (c) Determine which of these matrices are similar. (3) Compute the Jordan canonical form of the following matrices: A =  1 0 1 2 1 2 1 1 0 4 6 1 , B = 1 0 0 1 2 1 0 4 1 0 1 2 0 0 0 1 ....
