A Generalization of the Cayley-Hamilton Theorem

**Author(s)**Leave a comment

It is proposed to generalize the concept of the famous classical Cayley-Hamilton theorem for square matrices wherein for any square matrix

*A*, the det (*A-xI*) is replaced by det*f*(*x*) for arbitrary polynomial matrix*f*(*x*).Conflicts of Interest
