# Is a tridiagonal matrix Square?

## Is a tridiagonal matrix Square?

A square matrix with nonzero elements only on the diagonal and slots horizontally or vertically adjacent the diagonal (i.e., along the subdiagonal and superdiagonal), , represented as a SparseArray.

### What is tridiagonal form?

A tridiagonal matrix is a matrix that has non-zero elements only on its main diagonal, and the two diagonals directly adjacent to it. Reducing a matrix to a tridiagonal form is an iterative process which uses Jacobi rotations to reduce matrix el- ements to zero.

**How to determine the eigenvalues of a matrix?**

Determine the eigenvalues of the given matrix A using the equation det (A – λI) = 0,where I is equivalent order identity matrix as A.

**How to plot complex eigenvalues of a matrix?**

function [e] = plotev(n) % [e] = plotev(n) % % This function creates a random matrix of square % dimension (n). It computes the eigenvalues (e) of % the matrix and plots them in the complex plane. % A = rand(n); % Generate A e = eig(A); % Get the eigenvalues of A close all % Closes all currently open figures.

## Do real matrices always have real eigenvalues?

Therefore, any real matrix with odd order has at least one real eigenvalue, whereas a real matrix with even order may not have any real eigenvalues. The eigenvectors associated with these complex eigenvalues are also complex and also appear in complex conjugate pairs. Let λi be an eigenvalue of an n by n matrix A.

### What are tridiagonal matrices?

Properties. A tridiagonal matrix is a matrix that is both upper and lower Hessenberg matrix. In particular, a tridiagonal matrix is a direct sum of p 1-by-1 and q 2-by-2 matrices such that p + q/2 = n — the dimension of the tridiagonal. Although a general tridiagonal matrix is not necessarily symmetric or Hermitian, many of those that arise when solving linear algebra problems have one of
