Assignment 5: Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors Written by: Saber Mirzaei Problem 1. (a) Solving equation | | | | and (b) Solving equation | | | | and Problem 2. (a) We know that is an eigenvalue of a matrix iff such that ( ) . Also from properties of determinant of a matrix we know that ( ) ( ) , so: So if ( ) then (( ) ) . From properties of transpose of a matrix we have ( ) ( ) . Hence: is an eigenvalue of a matrix iff such that ( ) . Accordingly based on the definition of eignetvalue, is also an eigenvalue of as well (Just notice that all the equalities are two sided so no need to prove the other side for iff). (b) Let be a vector in whose entries are all ’s. Doing the math we get [ ] . Hence is and eigenvalue and is an eigenvector. (c) Using previous part we have is and eigenvalue of . Using part (a) we have is and eigenvalue of as well.

### 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.
