Manuel Luethi HOMEPAGE

Manuel Luethi (a.k.a. Manuel Lüthi!)

Since September 2021 I am a PostDoc at EPFL under the guidance of Philippe Michel.

From October 2019 to September 2021 I was lucky to be a PostDoc at the Tel Aviv University working with Barak Weiss.

From March 2015 to October 2019 I did a PhD at ETHZ, where I also did my undergraduate studies. My advisor was Manfred Einsiedler.

For the period from October 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019 I visited the Einstein Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University enjoying an SNSF Doc.Mobility Fellowship.

A motivated proof of the singular value decomposition

A proof of the singular value decomposition avoiding matrices in order to give a better geometric motivation. A write up of the proof provided in this course on Linear Algebra by Meike Akveld.


A genuinely linear proof of joint diagonalizability

A proof avoiding the minimal polynomial of the fact that a family of commuting, diagonalizable matrices is jointly diagonalizable. A reorganized write up of the sample solution to an exercise posed in this course on Linear Algebra by Meike Akveld.
