Similar Matrices and Jordan Form  Lecture 28. Learn what similar matrices are and a bit more about positive definite matrices. Also, Jordan Form is explained.
 What are positive definite matrices?
 What is Jordan Form?
 What are similar matrices?
 What does it mean for matrices to be similar?
 Where do positive definite matrices come from?
This video does some more to explain tests for positive definite matrices, and introduces similar matrices. A good introduction to these very interesting matrices. Jordan Form is also explained well in this video.
