Let denote a
field,
and let denote a
finite-dimensional
vector space.
A
linear mapping
is called
*trigonalizable*,
if there exists a
basis
such that the describing matrix of with respect to this basis is an

Diagonalizable linear mappings are in particular trigonalizable. The reverse statement is not true, as example shows.

Let denote a field, and let denote an finite-dimensional vector space. Let

denote a

linear mapping. Then the following statements are equivalent.- is trigonalizable.
- The characteristic polynomial has a factorization into linear factors.

such that is an upper triangular matrix.

### Proof

This proof was not presented in the lecture.

Let denote a square matrix with complex entries. Then is trigonalizable.

This follows from fact and the Fundamental theorem of algebra.
