Proving orthonormality using hermition operators, Map beween two subspace, Transformations for Matrices

  • We discuss any vector  can be written in terms of linear combination of eigen vectors.
  • Eigen vectors can form basis  so hermitian operator can be diagonalized .
  • We proved that statement which was so long and gave some examples.
  • Characteristic Polynomials are given .
  • Decomposition of full vector space in terms of subspace is given.
  • We proved subspace (S_i) consist of generalized eigen vectors of
  •  $ A_i$ with eigen value of $\lambda_i$ . Mentioned how many null
  • vectors must be existed in subspaces.
  • ·Degeneracy of  eigen vector with rank 1 is given.
  • Transformations for the explicit Matrices for making them diagonal is expressed.
