Instructor: A. Finbow
Arthur Cayley
1821 – 1895
Sir William R. Hamilton
1805 – 1865
F. Georg Frobenius
1849 – 1917
Cayley in 1858 published Memoir on the theory of matrices in which, among other things, he proved that,
in the case of 2 × 2 matrices, a matrix satisfies its own characteristic equation. He stated that he had
checked the result for 3 × 3 matrices, indicating its proof, but said: “I have not thought it necessary to
undertake the labour of a formal proof of the theorem in the general case of a matrix of any degree”. In
1853, Hamilton had already proven the 4 × 4 case in the course of his investigations into quaternions.
The general case was first proved by Frobenius (Schur’s Doctoral supervisor) in 1878.

Trial Theorem. Let W be a subspace of Rn. Then the projection matrix from Rn onto W is
the identity matrix.
Proof:
Let P be the projection matrix from Rn onto W. By Theorem 7.11, P = A (ATA)1 T
A . But then, using Theorem 3.9 c) we have
P = A (ATA)-1AT = A(A-1(AT) -1)AT = (AA-1)((AT) -1AT) = (I)(I) = I

in the Notes for March 31 (part 1). I will take the matrix A = (−4 −6 −3) and tell

you that one of its eigenvalues is −2. You are to find a unitary (orthogonal in this case)
triangulation T for A following the method of the proof.
1. Compute a unit eigenvector u corresponding to −2.
2. Extend to an orthonormal basis for R3 with the first vector in the basis and form the
matrix U.
3. Multiply UTAU to find the 2 by 2 matrix B.
4. Find an eigenvalue for B and repeat the above steps to produce the matrix W
5. From this construct the matrix V, and obtain the product UV.
6. Finally write down the matrix T.
7. Now that you know all the eigenvalues, check if A is diagonalizable.

{v1, v1 + 3v2, v1 + v2 + 2v3} is also independent.
