I have the following matrix: Out of this, I get the eigenvalues The Eigenvector for λ1 is pretty straight forward, but for the two others I am struggling a bit more. Does any one have any idea for a solution? Last edited by skipjack; April 20th, 2017 at 10:47 AM.

the method is the same even though the eigenvalues are complex.

Insert the eigenvalue in for $\lambda$ and Gaussian reduce $A-\lambda I$

You'll have to convert those complex values to cartesian form and use complex arithmetic while reducing.

Here's the reduction of $A-\dfrac{1}{2} \left(1+i \sqrt{3}\right) I$
