1.Label(a)(b)(c)(d)(e)(f )(g)(h)the following statements as true or false. Eigenvectors of a linear operator T are also generalized eigenvec- tors of T. It is possible for a generalized eigenvector of a linear operator T to correspond to a scalar that is not an eigenvalue of T. Any linear operator on a finite-dimensional vector space has a Jor- dan canonical form. A cycle of generalized eigenvectors is linearly independent. There is exactly one cycle of generalized eigenvectors correspond- ing to each eigenvalue of a linear operator on a finite-dimensional vector space. Let T be a linear operator on a finite-dimensional vector space whose characteristic polynomial splits, and let λ1 , λ2 , . . . , λk be the distinct eigenvalues of T. If, for each i, βi is a basis for Kλi , then β1 ∪ β2 ∪ · · · ∪ βk is a Jordan canonical basis for T. For any Jordan block J, the operator LJ has Jordan canonical form J. Let T be a linear operator on an n-dimensional vector space whose characteristic polynomial splits. Then, for any eigenvalue λ of T, Kλ = N((T − λI)n ). Sec. 7.1 The Jordan Canonical Form I 495 2.
