Abstract : In this paper we decompose (under unitary similarity) the Kronecker sum $A\boxplus A$ ($=A\otimes I+I\otimes A$) into a direct sum of irreducible matrices, when $A$ is a $3\times3$ matrix.
As a consequence we identify $\mathcal{K}(A\boxplus A)$ as the direct sum of several full matrix algebras as predicted by Artin--Wedderburn theorem, where $\mathcal{K}(T)$ is the unital algebra generated by $T$ and $T^{\ast}$.
