Help on finding eigenvalues of transformation on matrices

T is linear transformation working on 2x2 matrices: T(A) = $\begin{bmatrix}1 & 1\\1 &1\end{bmatrix}$ A as far as I see only 0 is an eigen value but someone told me 2 is eigen value too and ...

Diagonalization of a strange transformation

Let be $V$ a vector space on $\mathbb C$ and $\dim V=4$ and let be $f \in \operatorname{End}(V)$ such that $\operatorname{Im}(f^2+a \cdot \operatorname{id}) \subset \ker(f+id)$ where $a=\det f$, ...

Reconstructing a Matrix in $\Bbb{R}^3$ space with $3$ eigenvalues, from matrices in $\Bbb{R}^2$

I have a matrix which represents a closed loop matrix of a control system with delays (Control Systems Theory) in $\Bbb{R}^3$ space that has $3$ eigenvalues. Through some process I have obtained three ...

Long-term behaviour of a linear transformation (Is the domain eventually mapped onto the dominant eigenspace?)

As far as its coordinate representation is concerned, the domain of a linear transformation will eventually (i.e. after infinitely many iterations of the transformation) be mapped onto the dominant ...
