Eigen values and eigen vectors

Rajiv Kumar Math II

Definition : If

A is square matrix of order n,

then the values of λ for which the equation
Ax = λx ………… (i)
has

nontrivial

solutions

eigenvalues of matrix A . If

are called
λ

the

is an eigen

value , then the nonzero vectors x for which
equation (i) is true are called eigenvectors for
eigen value λ.
Rajiv Kumar Math II

21

How to find eigen values
Eigen values λ are roots of
characteristic polynomial
|A-λI| i.e values of λ for
which |A-λI|=0

A-λI|=0 is called characterstic equati

Remark : Eigen values may be real
or complex numbers.
Rajiv Kumar Math II

22

Definition : Set of all eigen
vectors for an eigen value λ
is written as E(λ).
Eigen space : eigen space
for eigen value
λ of (m×n)
matrix A is ker (A-λI) in
other words nullspace of
matrix (A-λI).

(2 - λ ){λ − 3λ - 4}= 0
(2 - λ )(λ + 1)(λ − 4) = 0

Theorem : Let v1,v2,…,vr be the
eigenvectors for distinct
eigenvalues λ1 , λ2 ,..., λr of an
n × n square matrix A with r≤ n.
Then the set
{ v1 ,..., vr } is linearly
independent.
Rajiv Kumar Math II

36

Proof: We shall prove this
theorem by induction v1 ≠ 0 by
definition of an eigenvector it is
a non-zero vector, therefore
{ v } is Linearly Independent.

Rajiv Kumar Math II

37

Now assume

{ v1 , v2 ,..., vm }

is
Linearly independent
Now, we shall prove

{ v1, v2 ,..., vm , vm +1}

is

Linearly independent
Rajiv Kumar Math II

38

Let

α1v1 + α 2v2 +,...,
+ α m vm + α m +1vm +1 = 0........(1)
Apply matrix A on both sides

A(α1v1 + α 2v2 +,...,
+ α m vm + α m +1vm +1 ) = A(0)
Rajiv Kumar Math II

39

α1 Av1 + α 2 Av2 +,...,
+ α m Avm + α m +1 Avm +1 =0

Rajiv Kumar Math II

40

α 1λ1v1 + α 2 λ2 v2 +,...,
+ α m λm vm + α m +1λm +1vm +1 = 0...(i)
Now multiplying (1) by
we get

λm +1 ,

α1λm +1v1 + α 2λm +1v2 +,...,
+ α mλm +1vm + α m +1λm +1vm +1 =0 − − −(ii )
Rajiv Kumar Math II

41

on subtracting (ii) from (i), we get

α1 ( λ1 − λm+1 ) v1 + α 2 ( λ2 − λm+1 ) v2 +,...,
+ α m ( λm − λm +1 ) vm = 0
Now set

{ v1 , v2 ,..., vm }
Rajiv Kumar Math II

is LI

42

Therefore

α1 ( λ1 − λm+1 ) v1 = α 2 ( λ2 − λm+1 ) v2 .......
= α m ( λm − λm+1 ) vm = 0

Since λ1 , λ2 ,..., λm , λm +1 are
distinct, therefore

α1 = α 2 =,..,α m = 0 .
Rajiv Kumar Math II

43

Now (1) reduces to
0v1 + 0v2 +,...,+0vm + α m +1vm +1 = 0

α m +1vm +1 = 0 ⇒ α m +1 = 0

as

v m +1 ≠ 0

being an

eigenvector.
Rajiv Kumar Math II

44

Therefore the set

{ v1, v2 ,..., vm , vm +1}
Rajiv Kumar Math II

is LI.
