I have another question concerning Eigensystem: I try to get the 
Eigensystem for heritian (complex) matrices. Following my test matrix 
But if I try to get Eigensystem[M] nothing comes up. What could be the 
problem? I have already found out (archive) that there seem to be some 
special effects when using Eigensystem on complex matrices, but these 
messages dated from 1999 and 2000. Has anything changed since then? Is 
there a way to solve my problem?
Thanks for help
