    I'm kind of weak in this area, so I'm just going to shoot you a link http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/LinAlg/Diagonalization.aspx I'm sure somebody can explain it in their own words though... @UnkleRhaukus @nbouscal

    Why don't you ask a specific question? Your question is too general and it takes time to answer all aspects of it.

    okay: use the diagonlization theomr to find eignevalues of A and baisis for each eignespace: A= [ 2 -1 -1 1 4 1 -1 -1 2] =[ 1 -1 0 [ 3 0 0 [ 0 -1 -1 -1 1 -1 0 2 0 -1 -1 -1 0 -1 1] 0 0 3] -1 -1 0]

    \[ Det(A-\lambda I)=-\lambda ^3+8 \lambda ^2-21 \lambda +18=(\lambda -3)^2 (2-\lambda ) \] So it has 3 as a double eigenvalue and 2.

    \[-\lambda^3+8\lambda^2-20\lambda+18\]

    Find X such that AX = 2 X and Y such AY =3Y Y1={-1, 0, 1} Y2={-1, 1, 0} X={1, -1, 1} Y1, and Y2 is a basis for the eigenspace of 3 X is a basis for the eigensapce 2
