I'm trying to do something that requires solving an eigenvalue problem of the form(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]A_{imkl} c_m c_k c^*_l=\lambda c_i[/tex]

where A is a known rank-4 tensor, [itex]\lambda[/itex] is the eigenvalue, and the [itex]c_i[/itex]'s are a set of unknown coefficients that I need to determine. I would guess that this type of problem should be solvable, but I have no idea where to start. For all I know, it's a problem with a common name that I just don't know. Any pointers?
