Here, we are given that Z is the cycle of generalized eigenvectors of a linear operator T on V that corresponds to the eigenvalue \(\displaystyle\lambda\).
Let T be a linear operator on a vector space , and let be an eigenvalue of . Suppose that
\(\displaystyle{Z}={\left\lbrace{v}_{{1}},{v}_{{2}},\ldots,{v}_{{n}}\right\rbrace}\)
Or if p is the smallest positive integer such that \(\displaystyle{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{p}}{v}={0},{Z}={\left\lbrace{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{{p}-{1}}}{v},{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{{p}-{2}}}{v},\ldots,{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}{v},{v}\right\rbrace}\),
cycles of generalized eigenvectors of corresponding to .

Now, we need to show that span(Z) is a T-invariant subspace of V.
Let us take a vector w from span(Z).
So, we can be written as linear combination of \(\displaystyle{v}_{{1}},{v}_{{2}},\ldots,{v}_{{n}}\).
i.e., \(\displaystyle{w}=\alpha_{{1}}{v}_{{1}}+α{l}{p}{h}{a}_{{2}}{v}_{{2}}+\ldots+\alpha_{{n}}{v}_{{n}}{w}{h}{e}{r}{e}{a}{t}\le\ast{o}\ne\alpha_{{i}}\ne{0}\).
Now, it can be observed that if we can show that the vectors are T invariant then w is also T invariant.
\(\displaystyle{T}{\left({v}_{{i}}\right)}={T}{\left({\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{k}}{v}\right)}\), for some k (by the definition)
\(\displaystyle={\left({T}-\lambda{I}+\lambda{I}\right)}{\left({\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{k}}{v}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{k}}{v}+\lambda{I}{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{k}}{v}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{{k}+{1}}}{v}+\lambda{I}{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{k}}{v}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{{k}+{1}}}{v}+{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{k}}{\left(\lambda{v}\right)}\)
And note that \(\displaystyle{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{{k}+{1}}}{v}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{\left({T}-\lambda{I}\right)}^{{k}}{\left(\lambda{v}\right)}\) are also in span(Z), i.e., T-invariant.
Now, since w was taken randomly, span(Z) is a T-invariant subspace of V.

Let \(\displaystyle\le{f}{t}{\left\lbrace{v}_{{{1}}},\ {v}_{{{2}}},\dot{{s}},\ {v}_{{{n}}}{r}{i}{g}{h}{t}\right\rbrace}\) be a basis for a vector space V. Prove that if a linear transformation \(\displaystyle{T}\ :\ {V}\rightarrow\ {V}\) satisfies \(\displaystyle{T}{\left({v}_{{{1}}}\right)}={0}\ \text{for}\ {i}={1},\ {2},\dot{{s}},\ {n},\) then T is the zero transformation.
Getting Started: To prove that T is the zero transformation, you need to show that \(\displaystyle{T}{\left({v}\right)}={0}\) for every vector v in V.
(i) Let v be an arbitrary vector in V such that \(\displaystyle{v}={c}_{{{1}}}\ {v}_{{{1}}}\ +\ {c}_{{{2}}}\ {v}_{{{2}}}\ +\ \dot{{s}}\ +\ {c}_{{{n}}}\ {v}_{{{n}}}.\)
(ii) Use the definition and properties of linear transformations to rewrite \(\displaystyle{T}\ {\left({v}\right)}\) as a linear combination of \(\displaystyle{T}\ {\left({v}_{{{1}}}\right)}\).
(iii) Use the fact that \(\displaystyle{T}\ {\left({v}_{{i}}\right)}={0}\) to conclude that \(\displaystyle{T}\ {\left({v}\right)}={0}\), making T the zero tranformation.
