for a matrix A, is the characteristic polynomial = |A - I*lamda| (where I = the identity matrix)

in my textbook its like that, but in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_c6FV9fGV8), they've got it as |I*lamda - A|

They are both correct.

In terms of eigenvalues you will have the same because one is just the negative of the other
