1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Prove that if T in L(V) is normal, then Ker(Tk) = Ker(T) and Im(Tk) = Im(T) for every positive integer k. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Since T is normal, I know that TT* = T*T, and also that ||Tv|| = ||T*v|| and <Tv, Tv> = <T*v, T*v>. Ker(T) is the set of v in V such that Tv = 0. Ker(Tk) is the set of v in V such that Tkv = 0. To prove the first part, I want to show that Tkv = 0 iff Tv = 0. I'm not really sure where the fact that T is normal plays into this. I assume that proving the second part about Im(T) is done in much the same way. Thanks, as always, for any help.
