Show that if A is Diagonalizable, then Tr(A) is the sum of the eigenvalues.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
if A is diagonalizable then let the diagonal entries be a(ii) for i=1, ..., n.
then Tr(A) = Σa(ii) ie sum over i.
and the eigen values are roots of equation
(a(11)-λ) (a(22)-λ) ... (a(nn)-λ) = 0
which will give n roots same as a(11) , ... , a(nn)
so Tr(A) is sum of eigenvalues.
