The eigenvalues of the matrix [tex] \left(\begin{array}{cc}0 & \frac{1}{2}\\\frac{1}{2} & 0\end{array}\right) [/tex] are [itex] \lambda_1 = \frac{1}{2} [/itex] and [itex] \lambda_2 = -\frac{1}{2} [/itex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem here is that I have no idea of how to calculate the eigenvectors. Could some one please explain me, in detail, how do I find the eigenvectors?

Thanks in advance.
