Linear Algebra Example Problems – Diagonalizing a Matrix

The previous video on this playlist used the matrix diagonalization A = PDP^1 to simplify a computation. In this video we show how to diagonalize A by explicitly constructing the matrices P and D. If A has unique eigenvalues, D should be a diagonal matrix with eigenvalues along the diagonal while P will have eigenvectors as its columns.
