The characteristic polynomial of a square matrix is the polynomial $p(\lambda)=\operatorname{det}(\lambda I-$ $A$ ).

a) If two square matrices are similar, show that they have the same characteristic polynomials.

b) Conversely, if two matrices have the same characteristic polynomials, are they similar? Proof or counterexample.
