Notes 23: More Eigenvalues, Eigenvectors
Lecture December 8, 2010
Given a 2 2 matrix M with complex eigenvalues, our goal is to nd a basis B of R2
so that the matrix representing M with respect to the basis B is simple. Indeed we will
show how to nd a bas
Notes 22: More Eigenvalues, Eigenvectors
Lecture December 6, 2010
We apply our algorithms for nding eigenvalues and eigenvectors to 3 3 matrices. To
do this we need a dierent way of calculating the determinants of matrices. it is called
expansion by minor
