Suppose A & B are Hermitian matrices and AB=BA, show that A and B are simultaneously diagonalizable, ie, there exists an unitary matrix C so that both C*AC adn C*BC are diagonal.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com November 24, 2022, 11:56 am ad1c9bdddf
Thank you for posting your question to Brainmass!
What you actually want to show is that A and B share the same eigenvectors. since B and a are hemitians, the matrix that is constructed from these eiegenvectors will diagonalize them both.
An eigen vector is defined as:
Where I is the identity ...
