(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Nullity(B-5I)=2 and Nullity(B-5I)^2=5

Characteristic poly is: (λ-5)^12

Find the possible jordan forms of B and the minimal polynomials for each of these JFs.

3. The attempt at a solution

JFs: J_{n1}(5) or ... or J_{ni}(5).

Not sure how to find these jordan forms and minimal polynomials.
