deg(u_L) = dim(V)

here,

L: V -> V linear operator on finite dimensional vector space

C_x = span {x, L(x), L^2(x),.............}

u_L = minimal polynomial

my thought:

since C_x = V, it spans V. if it spans v, then degree of minimal poly that we somehow obtain from L should be dim(V). i dunno.

i can't figure out how to connect C_x and L with minimal poly.
