Moreover, as we shall see later on, the simple form of the spectra of A becomes very handy for various analyses. Here are a few more useful facts. A is called normal if AA = A A. An important example is symmetric matrices A = A . It can be proven that normal n × n matrices have exactly n linearly independent eigenvectors (over C). If A is symmetric, all eigenvalues of A are real, and A has n linearly independent real orthogonal eigenvectors. 14 illustrates this: A has orthonormal eigenvectors and thus V is an orthogonal matrix that transforms A into a diagonal matrix D.

16. The 2D plane (x, y) is mapped to a parallel plane in 3D, (X, Y, W ); for convenience, we choose W = 1. Instead of applying the transformations over (x, y, 0), we apply them over (X, Y, W ). Then, the transformed point is mapped back by (X, Y, W ) → ((X/W ), (Y /W )) . The trick is that translating points in the plane (X, Y, 1) never translates the origin of R3 , and the operator that translates the vector (x, y, 1) by a and b to (x + a, y + b, 1) is a linear operator with a convenient matrix form: 1 0 a x x+a 0 1 b y = y + b .

The eigenvectors of matrix A form a basis for the column space of A. Let A be a square n × n matrix. A vector v is an eigenvector of A if Av = λv , 24 Linear Algebra? where λ is a scalar and v is a nonzero vector. The scalar λ is called an eigenvalue of v. Notice that by this definition, eigenvectors are not unique; they are determined up to a multiplicative constant. It is common practice to normalize them, namely, set v = 1. An eigenvector spans an axis (subspace of dimension 1) that is invariant under A.
