(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Write the eigenvector of [itex]\sigma[/itex]x with +1 eigenvalue as a linear combination of the eigenvectors of M.

2. Relevant equations

[itex]\sigma[/itex]x = (0,1),(1,0) (these are the columns)

3. The attempt at a solution

.... Don't know what to do. Can someone show me how to do this using arbitrary eigenvectors, say (a,b) and (c,d)?
