Hi PF readers,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When trying to establish [tex]\lambda[/tex] values by solving a characteristic equation (for simplicity of 2x2 matrix) can one produce solution that contains complex roots? If yes, what does that show about the eigenvectors?

Thanks in advance!
