Homework Statement
I think I am evaluating a wrong value for eigen vector. Wrong in the sense that first row is giving different value and next row is giving a different value.
The matrix is:
[0 1]
[2 3]
My eigen values are λ=1 & λ=2. I get the fine vectors for λ=1 but λ=2 x vanishes.
Homework Equations
AλI = 0
& Ax = λx
The Attempt at a Solution
[0 1] * [x] = 2 * [x]
[2 3] [y] [y]
First row gives: y = 2x 2y
2x = 3y
Now x = 2/3 y
μ =[2, 3] (instead of column, i am showing row vector)
But the second row gives me: 2x 3y = 2x 2y (therfore x vanishes)
they have evaluated
μ=[1, 2] (instead of column, i am showing row vector)
Some body please guide me.
Zulfi.
