Consider an $n \times n$ matrix $\text{A}$ and a non-zero $n \times 1$ vector $\text{p}$. Their product $Ap=\alpha ^{2}p$, where $\alpha \in \Re$ and $\alpha \notin  \left \{ -1,0,1 \right \}$. Based on the given information, the eigen value of $A^{2}$ is:

  1. $\alpha$
  2. $\alpha ^{2}$
  3. $\surd{\alpha }$
  4. $\alpha ^{4}$

Consider a vector $\text{p}$ in $2$-dimensional space. Let its direction (counter-clockwise angle with the positive $\text{x}$-axis) be $\theta$. Let $\text{p}$ be an eigenvector of a $2\times2$ matrix $\text{A}$ with corresponding eigenvalue $\lambda ,\lambda > 0$. If we denote the ... ${p}'=\theta ,\left \| {p}' \right \|= \left \| p \right \|/\lambda$

Let the superscript $\text{T}$ represent the transpose operation. Consider the function $f(x)=\frac{1}{2}x^TQx-r^Tx$, where $x$ and $r$ are $n \times 1$ vectors and $\text{Q}$ is a symmetric $n \times n$ matrix. The stationary point of $f(x)$ is $Q^{T}r$ $Q^{-1}r$ $\frac{r}{r^{T}r}$ $r$
