2 4( )( ) 2 bb a c a λ −± = 24 4 ( 1 ) ( 7 ) 2 ±− = 23 2 4 2 11 2 2 22 ± == ± = ± Theorem: MATRICES WITH REAL NUMBER ENTRIES MAY HAVE COMPLEX EIGENVALUES. Example: Let 12 A  =   Find the eigenvalues. Solution: Set det A − λ I () = 0 and solve for λ .

Several questions will ask for ___+___i and you’ll have to fill in the blanks. Theorem: FOR A REAL MATRIX, COMPLEX EIGENVALUES OCCUR IN CONJUGATE PAIRS; THAT IS, IF a + bi IS AN EIGENVALUE THEN SO IS a - bi .
