Real symmetric matrices are diagonalizable

This article involves advanced linear algebra knowledge but it definitely worth understanding it. The previous post contains a proof that a real symmetric matrix has real eigenvalues. Additionally the real symmetric matrices are diagonalizable by an orthogonal matrix. This means:  symmetric,   … Continue reading

Real symmetric matrices have real eigenvalues

A real matrix is symmetric if . I will show in this post that a real symmetric matrix have real eigenvalues. I will need a dot product for the prof and I’ll use the basic dot product for two vectors … Continue reading
