A set of linear difference equation is given by Uj+1 = A Uj + bj, where the non singular NxN matrix A has N distinct nonzero eigenvalues lambda(i) and the corresponding eigenvector x(i). Show that ||A^j||<=M where M is a positive number independent of j, is equivalent to |lambda(i)|<=1 for all i=1,2...N

Anyone can help?
