Let a linear mapping on a -vector space over a field . Show that the subset of , defined by

is an -invariant linear subspace.

Let ${}\varphi \colon V\rightarrow V$ a linear mapping on a ${}K$-vector space ${}V$ over a field ${}K$. Show that the subset of ${}V$, defined by

- ${}U={\left\{v\in V\mid {\text{ there exists an }}n\in \mathbb {N} {\text{ with }}\varphi ^{n}(v)=0\right\}}\,,$

is an ${}\varphi$-invariant linear subspace.
