Student[LinearAlgebra][MinimalPolynomial] - construct the minimal polynomial of a Matrix

Calling Sequence

MinimalPolynomial(A, t)

Parameters

A

-

Matrix

t

-

name; variable

Description

• 

The MinimalPolynomial(A, t) command returns a polynomial in t that is the minimal polynomial of Matrix A.

  

The minimal polynomial of A is the polynomial of lowest degree that divides every polynomial which has A as a zero.
