# Making Problem Eigenvalues

Hi,

I'd like to make my own mathematical problem in which you'd have to use the calculation of eigenvalues, eigenvectors and a (high) power of a matrix A. (with definitions: AX = $$\lambda$$X & A$$^{n}$$ = BD$$^{n}$$B$$^{-1}$$).

I'm not searching for something too complicated, it's more like to integrate these methods into your mathematical skills.

All my tries have failed so far. As I want to take the power of a matrix, I'm thinking of Markov chains or Lesliematrices. Does anybody have some suggestions?

I'd also prefer there not being a need of ICT-use.
