Lie teams and their representations occupy an incredible position in arithmetic with functions in such various fields as differential geometry, quantity conception, differential equations and physics. In 1977 a symposium was once held in Oxford to introduce this swiftly constructing and increasing topic to non-specialists.

As−1 , say As = c0 I + c1 A + · · · + cs−1 As−1 , and taking m(x) = xs − cs−1 xs−1 − · · · − c1 x − c0 . The minimal polynomial divides all other polynomials that vanish at A. In particular, by the Cayley–Hamilton theorem, the minimal polynomial divides the characteristic polynomial, so the degree of m(x) is at most n. In fact, m(x) has the same zeros as the characteristic polynomial (the eigenvalues of A), only with smaller multiplicities. In some ways, the minimal polynomial is more revealing of the properties of a matrix than the characteristic polynomial.
2 and the fact that each G(λi ) is T-invariant, A is similar to a block diagonal matrix B = diag(B1 , B2 , . . , Bk ) where Bi is the matrix of T restricted to G(λi ) and relative to Gi . In fact, B = C −1 AC for C = [B , B ]. Since G(λi ) = ker(λi I − A)mi , where mi is the algebraic multiplicity of λi , we have that (λi I − T)mi is zero on G(λi ). Hence, (λi I − Bi )mi = 0 and so Bi = λi I + Ni where Ni = Bi − λi I is nilpotent. If the block Bi is an hi × hi matrix, then the characteristic polynomial of B is (x − λ1 )h1 (x − λ2 )h2 · · · (x − λk )hk .
Since the ﬁeld is algebraically closed, the characteristic polynomial of A must be p(x) = xn . By the Cayley–Hamilton theorem, 0 = p(A) = An and so A is nilpotent. Note that the argument breaks down (not the Cayley–Hamilton theorem, which holds over any ﬁeld) if the characteristic polynomial doesn’t factor completely. For instance, over the real ﬁeld R, the matrix ⎤ ⎡ 0 0 0 A = ⎣ 0 0 −1 ⎦ 0 1 0 has zero as its only eigenvalue but is not nilpotent. ) Now Mn (F) is not just a vector space under matrix addition and scalar multiplication, but also a ring with identity under matrix addition and 8 ADVANCED TOPICS IN LINEAR ALGEBRA multiplication, with scalar multiplication and matrix multiplication nicely intertwined by the law4 λ(AB) = (λA)B = A(λB) for all λ ∈ F and all A, B ∈ Mn (F).
