I'd like to do one of two things:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1: Find an example of a non-diagonal matrix whose matrix exponential (defined in terms of series) is diagonal.

2: Prove that no such examples exist.

I'm working with matrices over the complex field. My gut tells me that 2 is the way to go. I'd really appreciate any help with this.
