In this paper, the solution method of minimum polynomial is studied, six methods for solving the minimum polynomial are given: the undetermined coefficient method, the invariant factor method, the characteristic polynomial method, the Jordan standard form method, the vector method and Matlab. The vector method is actually a further study of the minimum polynomial. In order to better understand the solution method of the minimum polynomial, the related theorems are given in this paper. The article not only proves the solution method, but also analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of each solution method.
