# Linear Algebra Eigenvalues

### This note covers the following topics. Linear algebra eigenvalues. The first four axioms mean that v is an abelian group under addition. In linear algebra the trace of an n by n square matrix a is defined to be the sum of the elements on the main diagonal the diagonal from the upper left to the lower right of a ie where a ii denotes the entry on the ith row and ith column of athe trace of a matrix is the sum of the complex eigenvalues and it is invariant with respect to a change of basis. Emphasis is given to topics that will be useful in other disciplines including systems of equations vector spaces determinants eigenvalues similarity and positive definite matrices.
