    Hello...

    Given the matrix A

    <br />
A = \[ \begin{array}{ccc}<br />
0 & 1 & 0 \\<br />
0 & 0 & 1 \\<br />
1 & -3 & 3 \end{array}<br />
\]<br />

    I am trying to do this exercise about jordan canonical form... I understand that I have to calculate using this expression J = P^{-1}AP

    But all the eigenvalues of the matrix are the same... all of them are equal to one! Therefore, the matrix P is not invertible! How should I proceed in this case? Could anyone explain to me please?

    Thanks
