hello i have some problems and i don't know how to solve it so if you know some thing please help me:) my problem is: i have the photo as you can see it and i want to find eigenvalue and eigenvectors as Hermitian so what is the code to find them ?? by the way i have another question, when i try to use

[V,D] = eig(A,B,flag)

and i used 'chol', what is B should be ?? note that i use attach photo as A.

*No products are associated with this question.*

Accepted answer

I'm pretty sure that

[V,D] = eig(A)

is smart enough to check whether your A matrix is Hermitian, but you could do

[V,D] =eig(A, eye(size(A)), 'chol')

thank you for your declaration but i will ask in another clear way :) could i have complex eigenvectors from this image ?? yes or no if yes what is the way to have them ?? thank you

If you're getting real eigenvectors right now, one way to obtain a complex ones is to multiply them by i=sqrt(-1). Remember that if v is an eigenvector, then so is c*v for any scalar, c, real or complex.
