I have tried to solve a matrix {{-4, -2},{-2, -1}]. e =0 where e is a 1x2 matrix say [{a, b}] and Tranpose[Conjugate[e]].e =1. I use Guassian Elimanation "LinearSolve" to solve this equation, but it all the time gives out {0,0}, the answer is not what I want in my case. Please help me to solve this puzzle. Many thanks.
