Let β and β be bases for the finite dimensional vector space V of dimension n over the field F, and let Q = [ I V ] β β , where I V is the identity operator on V. I just recently proved that Q [ x ] β = [ x ] β for every x V (twas rather simple), which suggests the title of "basis transformation" matrix or "coordinate transformation" matrix for the matrix Q. I am now wondering whether the converse holds.
Let V denote V with its elements written with respect to the basis β , and suppose that Q M n ( F ) is such that Q [ x ] β = [ x ] β for every x. Since L ( V V ) is isomorphic to the matrix algebra M n ( F ) by sending a linear operator to its matrix representation, given Q there exists a linear operator T L ( V , V ) such that Q = [ T ] β β . Hence [ T ] β β [ x ] β = [ x ] β or [ T ( x ) ] β = [ x ] β ...
I want to say that this implies T = I V , but I can't clearly see what lemma I need in order to make that conclusion.

Your equation [ T ( x ) ] β = [ x ] β says that T ( x ) and x have the same coordinates in the basis β. This means they can be written as the same linear combination of vectors of β and thus T ( x ) = x for all x V, i.e. T = I V .

Let Σ be a symmetric positive definite matrix with ones on the diagonal (= correlation matrix).
Let A be an invertible matrix.
I'm pretty sure that if Ω := A Σ A t has ones on its diagonal, then
Ω = I d     or     Ω = Σ
(which would correspond to A = I d or A = c h o l ( Σ ))
But I don't know how to proove it.

Consider a linear matrix differential equation of the form
d C d t = A C + C A T
where C is a symmetric n × n matrix and A is a n × n matrix. Find C ( t ).
Is there a formal solution for the above equation? This is in principle linear equation if we treat the matrix C and A as a n 2 vector. However, it does not seem to be practical way to solve the problem.
This kind of differential equations for matrices is quite new to me. Besides the formal solution let me know some books considering similar topic.
