Unformatted text preview: a b b a a b a i + =  + = = =  + = =  The normalization will show you that 1 2 a = . Furthermore, from above relation we have / a b i or i = =( here is in fact the eigenvalue). You see that: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 1  2  3  3  2  2  3 2 2 2  2  3 1 1  3  2  2  3  2  3 2 2 2 i O i i i O a b i i i O i  ++ + = = = + So you see that ( 29 1  2  3 2 i are the eigenvectors corresponding to eigenvalues i and i . Thus we obtained the three eigenvectors and their corresponding eigenvalues. Note, however, that the operator O here is not Hermitian because its 3 eigenvalues are not all real numbers....
