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

How do eigenvalues and eigenvectors relate to the density operator. Given the eigenvalues of a matrix, can they help to find the density operator ?

I have seen the formula within http://www.quantiki.org/wiki/Density_matrix but given a matrix how do I work it out to get the density operator ?

Links to related useful information/example appreciated.

Thanks
