is symmetric), by theorem 5, the quadratic form
is positive definite. Problem 4.
For a given quadratic form given by a quadratic polynomial
Step 1. Find the corresponding symmetric matrix
Step 2. Find the eigenvalues of : s.t. and sort them in decreasing order Step 3. For each eigenvalue find the unit eigenvectors corresponding to
