Let be a Hermitian matrix. Prove that

Solution

It is known that if is Hermitian then is diagonisable and of course each of its eigenvalues is real. It is also known that if then

Having said the above we have that if are the distinct eigenvalues of the matrix then as well as

Making use of the inequality above we get the result.
