Matrix Theory - Isometries
Find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of A.
See attached file for full problem description.
Consider the matrices in O(2) of the form:
these matrices correspond to the elements of O(2) with det(A)= -1. Find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of A.© SolutionLibrary Inc. solutionlibary.com 9836dcf9d7 https://solutionlibrary.com/math/algebra/matrix-theory-isometries-2b5
we need to find all (u,v) s.t.:
A(u,v)=x1(u,v) which means:
which can be written as:
From the first equation we get: v=-(cost-1)/sint*u,
and because the determinant of the system is -(cost-1)(cost+1)-sint*sint=0 we know that the second equation is just a scalar multiple of the first, so ...
