Homework Help: Finding the Basis?

  1. Dec 19, 2007 #1
    In a solution to an old exam the prof found a basis of a 5x5 matrix by simply subtracting the transpose of A from A aka(A - A^T) and then found the basis for the null for the now much simplified matrix.

    Is that a general guideline I can follow? If so it would make my life a lot easier.

    Have you posted where you meant to post? That sounds a lot more like Maths than Physics.
