These questions have got me confused:
1. By calculation, I know this matrix has eigenvalue -1, 0, 3 and they are distinct eigenvalues. Can I directly say that this matrix is diagonalizable without calculating the eigenspace and eigenvectors? For all situations, If we get n number of answers from (aλ+b)n , can we directly ensure that the matrix is diagonalizable?
2. My professor uses CA(x)=det(λI-A) but the textbook shows CA(x)=det(λI-A). which one is correct?
Thank you very much.
