(a) What is the relationship between the eigenvalues of $A$ and those of $A^{-1}$? Prove your answer.

(b) What is the relationship between the eigenvectors of $A$ and those of $A^{-1}$? Prove your answer.

  • $\begingroup$ As it has been said before, welcome to the site! And yes, it is the etiquette to show some effort in solving the problem. That being said, let me just share that the eigenvalues of the inverse of a square invertible matrix are simply the inverse of the original eigenvalues. The vectors stay the same. $\endgroup$ – Antoni Parellada Mar 14 '18 at 0:47

Hint: if $Av=\lambda v$, then multiply both sides by $\frac{1}{\lambda} A^{-1}$.
