I am trying to find out just how to solve for the eigenfunction given a system, namely the parameters of an optical system (say a polarizer) in the form of a 2 by 2 Jones Vector. I know how to derive the eigenvalue, using the the constituent det(λI -A) = 0, 'A' being the system at hand and 'λ' the eigenvalue. How do you go about solving for the eigenfunction?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
