## What changes the eigenvalues of a matrix?

All eigenvalues are 1 or 0. If we change an entry on the diagonal the algebraic multiplicity of the eigenvalues changes by one (one goes up and one goes down). But if we change any other entry the multiplicity of the eigenvalues do not change at all.

## Does a diagonal matrix have eigenvalues?

That is, the eigenvalues are the diagonal elements. The sum of the eigenvalues of a matrix is equal to the sum of its diagonal elements, which is called the trace of a matrix. 2. The product of the eigenvalues of a matrix is equal to the determinant of the matrix.

**Do eigenvalues change with row operations?**

(d) Elementary row operations do not change the eigenvalues of a matrix. Multiplying a row by a scalar can easily change the eigenvalues of a matrix.

**Are eigenvalues additive?**

Eigenvalues are additive when the corresponding eigenvector is the same – that is, if Av=λ1v and Bv=λ2v, then (A+B)v=Av+Bv=λ1v+λ2v=(λ1+λ2)v.

### What is a diagonal matrix of eigenvalues?

Recall that a diagonal matrix is a square η×η matrix with non-zero entries only along the diagonal from the under left to the lower right (the main diagonal). Diagonal matrices are particularly convenient for eigenvalue problems since the eigenvalues of a diagonal. matrix. A =

### Is the sum of eigenvalues and eigenvalue?

Theorem: If A is an n × n matrix, then the sum of the n eigenvalues of A is the trace of A and the product of the n eigenvalues is the determinant of A. Note that since the eigenvalues of A are the zeros of p(λ), this implies that p(λ) can be factorised as p(λ)=(λ − λ1)…

**Can eigenvalues be added?**

The matrix A has n eigenvalues (including each according to its multiplicity). The sum of the n eigenvalues of A is the same as the trace of A (that is, the sum of the diagonal elements of A). The product of the n eigenvalues of A is the same as the determinant of A.

**Do swapping row change the eigenvalues of a matrix?**

Since the determinant of the matrix is the product of all of its eigenvalues and is nonzero, a row switch must change at least one eigenvalue, and a row scaling must change at least one of the eigenvalues.

## Do row operations change determinant?

Proof: Key point: row operations don’t change whether or not a determinant is 0; at most they change the determinant by a non-zero factor or change its sign. Use row operations to reduce the matrix to reduced row-echelon form.

## What is the eigenvalue of a zero matrix with a scalar?

Suppose the matrix is A and the eigenvalue is λ with eigenvector v. Then, if α ≠ 0 is a scalar, we have So with a scalar α ≠ 0 the eigenvalues are multiplied by α, but the eigenvectors don’t change. If the scalar is 0, then α A is the zero matrix having only the zero eigenvalue. Capitalize on digital disruption.

**What are the eigenvalues of a projection matrix?**

The only eigenvalues of a projection matrix are 0 and 1. The eigenvectors for D 0 (which means Px D 0x/ ﬁll up the nullspace. The eigenvectors for D 1 (which means Px D x/ ﬁll up the column space. The nullspace is projected to zero. The column space projects onto itself.

**What is the difference between eigenvalue and eigenvector?**

Eigenvalues are the λ in solutions to the following equation: A x → = λ x →, where bold variables are linear operators (matrices) and italicized variables are scalars. Intuitively, eigenvectors are those vectors x → which point in the same direction after A operates on them. Eigenvalues are the values which scale the eigenvectors.

### What is the difference between inner and outer multiplication in matrices?

An inner multiplication and an outer multiplication. With outer multiplication each term in the matrix is multiplied by each term in the vector. This is an expansion operation and the result is a rank 3 tensor. (A matrix is a rank 2 tensor and a vector is a rank 1 tensor, so the terms combine to form a rank 2+1=3 tensor)
