## Canonical forms and equivalence

Hi Sir,

just to make sure if I’m correct, is it true that if 2 symmetric matrices

have the same real and/or complex canonical forms then they are equivalent?

Reply:

To be precise, two symmetric matrices are equivalent over if and only if they have the same real canonical form. They are equivalent over if and only if they have the same complex canonical form.
