6.4#5 Suppose that T is normal. I will show that T cI is normal too. By
Theorem 6.11(a,b,e), we have
(T cI) = T cI.
Therefore,
(T cI)(T cI) = (T cI)(T cI) = T T cT cT + ccI
and
(T cI) (T cI) = (T cI)(T cI) = T T c

(a) Complete the proof in example 5 that , is an inner product (the Frobenius
inner product) on Mnn (F ). In the example properties (a) and (d) have already
been veried, so we need to check that (b) and (c)

Theorem
If T : V W is a linear operator, then T t : W V is a linear
operator too where
T t (f )() = f (T )
for all f W .
Given f , g W , we have
T t (f +g )() = (f +g )(T ) = f (T )+g (T ) = T t (
