Prove that if λ is an eigenvalue of A ∈ C n×n such that index (λ) = k and alg multA (λ) = m, then dim N (A − λI)k = m. Is it also true that dim N (A − λI)m = m? 7.8.8. Let λj be an eigenvalue of A with index (λj ) = kj . Prove that if Mi (λj ) = R (A − λj I)i ∩ N (A − λj I), then D E 0 = Mkj (λj ) ⊆ Mkj−1 (λj ) ⊆ · · · ⊆ M0 (λj ) = N (A − λj I). T H 7.8.9. Explain why (A − λj I)i x = b(λj ) must be a consistent system whenever λj ∈ σ (A) and b(λj ) ∈ Si (λj ), where b(λj ) and Si (λj ) are as defined on p. 594. IG R 7.8.10. Does the result of Exercise 7.7.5 extend to nonnilpotent matrices? That is, if λ ∈ σ (A) with index (λ) = k > 1, is Mk−1 = R (A − λI)k−1 ? 7.8.11. As defined in Exercise 5.8.15 (p. 380) and mentioned in Exercise 7.6.10 80 (p. 573), the Kronecker product (sometimes called tensor product , 80 Y P Leopold Kronecker (1823–1891) was born in Liegnitz, Prussia (now Legnica, Poland), to a wealthy business family that hired private tutors to educate him until he enrolled at Gymnasium at Liegnitz where his mathematical talents were recognized by Eduard Kummer (1810– 1893), who became his mentor and lifelong colleague. Kronecker went to Berlin University in 1841 to earn his doctorate, writing on algebraic number theory, under the supervision of Dirichlet (p. 563). Rather than pursuing a standard academic career, Kronecker returned to Liegnitz to marry his cousin and become involved in his uncle’s banking business. But he never lost his enjoyment of mathematics. After estate and business interests were left to others in 1855, Kronecker joined Kummer in Berlin who had just arrived to occupy the position vacated by Dirichlet’s move to G¨ttingen. Kronecker didn’t need a salary, so he...
