The question posed is "Classify up to similarity all 3 x 3 complex matrices [tex]A[/tex] s.t. [tex]A^{3} = I[/tex]. I think the biggest problem I'm having is understanding what exactly this is asking me to do. The part that says "Classify up to similarity" is really throwing me off, so if someone could tell me what that implies, it would be very helpful!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Maybe it deals with equivalence classes, or something like that?
