Homework Statement
This is part of a larger problem of finding [tex] e^A [/tex], where [tex]
A = \left[ \begin{array}{ccc} 0 & 0 & 2 \\ 1 & 2 & 1 \\ 1 & 0 & 3 \end{array} \right]
[/tex]
Homework Equations

The Attempt at a Solution
I generally have no problems with diagonalising a matrix, however, in this case I just can't seem to get it to work. I've got the eigenvectors to be [tex] (1, 0, 1)^T, (0, 1, 0)^T, (2, 1, 1)^T [/tex]
Once carried through the steps of finding [tex] P, A, P^{2} [/tex] and finding the diagonal, I come out with
[tex] D = \left[ \begin{array}{ccc} 2 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 2 & 2 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 \end{array} \right] [/tex]
I've checked it on wolframalpha and on maple and both confirm that my inverse is correct and following through the multiplication both come out with the same result. Chances are I've just made a silly mistake somewhere. Can someone help me spot it?
Thankyou
