Econ 204 Supplement to Section 3 . 6 Diagonalization and Quadratic Forms

    Abstract

    De La Fuente notes that, if an n × n matrix has n distinct eigenvalues, it can be diagonalized. In this supplement, we will provide an additional, very important diagonalization result. Symmetric matrices can always be diagonalized; moreover, the change of basis matrices that carry out the di-agonalization have a special form. This has an important… (More)
