Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I hated linear algebra and don't remember anything, but I will suggest Paul's online notes for these (just Google is). Also, if you can get your hands on a pdf copy of 'Elementary Linear Algebra' by Larson and Falvo.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but I thought you used AbI=0, in order to find all the lambdas... and then use Ax=bx, in order to find the eigenvectors.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if I remember this right, you just plug in each lambda and solve (Ab_1*I)=0 (Ab_2*I)=0
