Wielandt wrote a paper titled "Remarks on diagonable matrices".

According to Mathematische Werke - Mathematical Works : Linear Algebra and Analysis by Helmut Wielandt, Hans Schneider, Bertram Huppert (Editor) page 260 this paper from Wielandt remained unpublished (at least from the 1950s to the 1980s).

Does anyone have a copy of it or an idea of the proof on non defective pencils?

The main theorem states that for $A,B \in \mathcal{M}_n(\mathbb C)$, if in the pencil $\lambda A+ \mu B$ all matrices are diagnosable ($\forall \lambda. \mu \in \mathbb{C}$), then $AB=BA$.

Motzkin and Taussky proved that result (MR0086781 (19,242c)), using algebraic geometry, Kato proved it differently (MR1335452 (96a:47025)), using theory of complex functions in one variable. Wielandt seemed to have given another proof, hence my request.

Thanks
