i have been asked to construct a matrix A such that $A^2$ is not equal to '0' but, $A^3=0$. how should i proceed.
i can only understand that all the eigenvalues for A , $A^2$ and $A^3$ will be 'zero' but then how to proceed !
please don't give me the answer only. i want to know how to proceed !
I TRIED CAYLEY HAMILTON THEOREM . (if $\lambda $ is the eigenvalue of A)
if $A^3=0 =>(\lambda)^3 =0 => (\lambda)=0 =>(\lambda)^2=0 =>A^2=0 $ so this is not possible . is there any fallacy in my application cayley hamilton. please point me out.
