Hi there!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let A be a square matrix of order n.

It is well known that if we have n distinct eigenvalues then we surely have n distinct eigenvectors. But if there are repeated eigenvalues then the tow possibilities may happen.

My question is: How can I know that do the eigenvectors are distinct or not?

Thank you very much.
