when isnt a matrix diagonalizable?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the text refers to something like

[itex] dim[E_{\lambda}(A)] [/itex] equals the multiplicity for every lambda for every square matrix A.

i m not sure how to interpret this...

ok lets say we have a matrix

1 0

0 2

whose eigenvalues are 1 and 2

the multiplicity of E1 and E2 are 1. So waht does that mean to the diagonalizability?
