Define the set ## V = \{ B | AB = BA, B \in M_{n \times n}( \mathbb{F}) \} ##

I know that ##V## is a subspace of ##M_{n \times n}( \mathbb{F}) ## but how might I go about finding the dimension of ##V##? Is this even possible? It seems like an interesting problem, but constructing a basis for ##V## seems to me challenging enough. Any tips for me?

Thanks!

P.S. Not a homework problem, I made it myself and not sure if it has a simple answer.
