If an eigenvalue of A is zero, it means that **the kernel (null space) of the matrix is not zero**. This means that the matrix has a determinant equal to zero. Such a matrix is not invertible.

**A square matrix is invertible if and only if zero is not an eigenvalue**. Solution hint: Correct. Null is an eigenvalue means there is a non-null element in the kernel. For a square matrix, invertibility is the same as having kernel zero.

**The zero matrix has only zero as its eigenvalue**, and the identity matrix has only one as its eigenvalue. In both cases, all eigenvalues are equal, so no two eigenvalues can have a nonzero distance from each other.

**The number 0 is an eigenvalue of A if and only if A is not invertible**.

Zero Eigenvalues

**If an eigenvalue has no imaginary part and is equal to zero, then the system is unstable** because, as already mentioned, a system is not stable if its eigenvalues have no non-negative real parts. This is just a trivial case of the complex eigenvalue that has a zero part.

**The zero matrix is a diagonal matrix and can therefore be diagonalized**. However, the zero matrix is not invertible since its determinant is zero.

**An eigenvalue of zero for the system means that the considered “physical quantity” resulted in zero**. This is easiest to think of in terms of spin or charge, or even quantum numbers like Charm and Strange.

View activity for this post. I know that **a 2×2 non-zero symmetric matrix cannot have only zero eigenvalues** (a zero eigenvalue with algebraic multiplicity 2), since such a matrix should have complex diagonal entries in order to both Traces to be met and determinant is zero.
