you just have to solve the right side equation, which is a linear equation groups,for a specific , say
Okay, so the matrix is...
I solved to find (which is the method I was taught), and I ended up with , but now I'm a bit stuck. I've written down...
... but I can't seem to manipulate it to get the eigenvectors.
Sorry, but I really don't think it's your place to tell me how to revise for my exams. I have been revising for this exam for MONTHS now, and the threads I posted last night were just a last-minute attempt to iron out a few creases.
I do understand the theory of it, I just have problems reducing it to one equation, which is what I wanted explaining.
I know you won't care, but the exam went well and this didn't matter in the end 'cause the question I was given had real eigenvalues (which I find easier to get my head around), so hooray!
