Generalized Eigenvectors Math 240 Deﬁnition Computation and Properties Chains Motivation Defective matrices cannot be diagonalized because they do not possess enough eigenvectors to make a basis. How can we correct this defect? Example The matrix 1 1 0 1 is defective. 1. Only eigenvalue is = 1 2. 0 1 0 0 3. Single eigenvector = (1 0) 4. We could use = (0 1) to complete a basis. 5. Notice that and Maybe we just didn’t multiply by λI enough times.

Generalized Eigenvectors Math 240 Deﬁnition Computation and Properties Chains Facts about generalized eigenvectors The aim of generalized eigenvectors was to enlarge a set of linearly independent eigenvectors to make a basis. Are there always enough generalized eigenvectors to do so? Fact If is an eigenvalue of with algebraic multiplicity , then nullity λI k. In other words, there are linearly independent generalized eigenvectors for Corollary If is an matrix, then there is a basis for consisting of generalized eigenvectors of

This means that λI for a positive integer If q , then λI λI That is, λI is also a generalized eigenvector corresponding to for = 0 ,...,p Deﬁnition If is the smallest positive integer such that λI then the sequence λI λI , ..., λI is called a chain or cycle of generalized eigenvectors. The integer is called the length of the cycle.
