I am continuing from :

https://www.physicsforums.com/threa...list-of-possible-solutions-for-lambda.955164/

I have got a 3 * 3 matrix. I have to find itseigen values and eigen vectors. I have found the eigen values.For calculating eigen vectors they are using an augmented matrix and then creating an echelon matrix. Is there a simplified way to do it.

R1= -3 -3 3

R2 = 3 -9 3

R3 = 6 -6 0

&

Lambda 1= 4

I have to find the vector corresponding to this eigen value. Is there a simple technique?

Some body please guide me.

Zulfi.

2. Relevant equations

Ax = λx

However in the example, they have used the augmented matrix method

3. The attempt at a solution

I am able to evaluate the eigen values. This is shown in the link which i have provided. Some body please guide me how to calculate eigen vectors.

Zulfi.
