1. What is the complex eigenvector for the 2*2 matrice:

Column 1 = [40,-116], and column 2 = [ 20, -56].

I have gotten the complex eigenvalues for this matrix which is .

Will appreciate any help thank you  2.

3. If you have the eigenvalues already what is the problem?  4. It looks like solving simultaneous equations in 2 unknowns. Av = λv, where A is the known matrix and λ is the eigenvalue. v is the eigenvector.  5. Originally Posted by Heinsbergrelatz What is the complex eigenvector for the 2*2 matrice:

The whole point of "eigenvalue" and "eigenvector" for matrix A is that for an eigenvalue and v an eigenvector. Given that -8+ 4i is an eigenvalue, a corresponding eigenvector must satisfy . So they must satisfy 40x+ 20y= (-8+ 4i)x, -116x- 56y= (-8+ 4i)y Specifically because -8+ 4i is an eigenvalue, those equations are not independent. There exist an infinite number of eigenvectors corresponding to a single eigenvalue (a subspace of them). What you can do is solve for, say, y in terms of x to get a general formula for the eigenvectors depending on the single parameter, x.  6. Thank You, so i have solved it, and i got two vectors: [1, -i/5 -12/5], [1, i/5 -12/5] , however it says represent in terms of where c=(_,_) and d= (_,_). Confused what is the c and d in these eigenvectors i have gotten. Help please.

What's wrong with   8. .... i see.. Thank you !  9. Question on symmetric matrices, if i have the matrix with the column 1 =[55, -112] and column 2 = [24, -49], how do I find S, D, S^-1 such that ?

Thank You  Bookmarks
