Posted: Wed Nov 29, 2006 3:08 am    Post subject: Diagonalizable matrix

A=[0 0 0 0
a 0 0 0
0 b 0 0
0 0 c 0]

Can this matrix by diagonalizable?
There is only one eigenvalue with order of multiplicity 4. So we need the dimension of the nullspace of A to be 4, so that A is a diagonalizable matrix.
I found that this is true just in case a=b=c=0. But this really confusing me...Am I right?
