# Addendum to: "An algebraic proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra"

@article{Puente2018AddendumT, title={Addendum to: "An algebraic proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra"}, author={Rub{\'e}n Puente}, journal={International Journal of Algebra}, year={2018}, volume={12}, pages={91-94} }

We prove the fundamental theorem of algebra (FTA on brief) by using linear algebra. The proof which arises from a new equivalent reformulation of FTA also works for any infinite field, having root for all polynomials of degree 2, and thus, sufficient condition for that field being algebraically closed.

ConclusionTheorems 2 and 3 establish the minimum algebraic conditions necessary for a field to be algebraically closed, and they can therefore be said to “optimize” the Fundamental Theorem of…

This paper will prove that every square matrix with complex coefficients has an eigenvector, equivalent to the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, and the slightly stronger result that any number of commuting square matrices with complex entries will have a common eigen vector.
