I am currently taking a basic 100 level linear algebra class, and we just went over how to find eigenspace and eigenvalue for a matrix. But on our homework, a question says
Suppose that λ is an eigenvalue of T : V → V, show blah blah
Since a linear transformation can be written as a matrix, can I just think of it as solving for eigenvalue/space of a matrix? Is there anything fundamentally different? Thank you!
