you are not quite applying the formula correctly.

, so

does that look any better? - October 12th 2011, 07:03 PMshimaraRe: eigenvector q and cayley-hamilton
Thank You Deveno, it works now.

I am still having trouble with the other question though. - October 12th 2011, 07:28 PMDevenoRe: eigenvector q and cayley-hamilton
what do you have so far?

- October 12th 2011, 07:56 PMshimaraRe: eigenvector q and cayley-hamilton
nothing, that is why I need a little help.

- October 12th 2011, 08:22 PMDevenoRe: eigenvector q and cayley-hamilton
well, you know x is an eigenvector for A, and y is an eigenvector for B^T, what can you do with that?

I have been trying to think about that but nothing comes to mind immediately.

Well I thought about doing this:
