Prove similar statement for minimal polynomial. The first part should be very similar to this (if not completely correct?): If [itex]A[/latex] is reversible than [itex]detA\neq 0[/latex]. Characteristic polynomial is by it's definition calculated as . for than: but is reversible and therefore so . End of part one (the other direction is similar). Part two: Minimal polynomial: For minimal polynomial but I am not sure how to continue.. BTW, why would this differ from the first part at all? could easily also be minimal? If in characteristic polynomial I insert instead of : but I don't see how this proves that is reversible. Could somebody give ma hint what's the whole idea here? :/ Thanks for all the help! This is actually Home Work I have to do so if there is a separated topic for this kind of questions I sincerely apologize! May 7th, 2013, 06:09 AM   #2

In that case becomes , exactly what you want. Tags characteristic, invertible, polynomial, show ,
