Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Given that we have some matrixMwith unknown real elements a, b, c, d and we know its eigenvalues [tex]\lambda_{1}[/tex] and [tex]\lambda_{1}[/tex] (no eigenvectors though) and the value of the determinant is it possible to find the elements and hence the matrixMusing this informaiton?

Thanks
