Eigenvector continued

Dear Mathgroup members,
please excuse the confusion in my first help request
regarding Eigenvectors. Sometimes it is better to have
a look at a book before sending questions.

Now I know that Mathematica obtains eigenvectors 
by applying the constraint Plus@@(e^2) == 1 for every 
eigenvector e. Thus getting a eigenvector e with
eigenvalue 1 and constraint
Plus @@ e == 1
is simply a linear programming problem. Since
the rows of the matrix m sum to 1, I can replace
any one equation by the constraint Plus @@ e == 1.

Again sorry for bothering you with 'private lesson'

Best regards,
	Johannes Ludsteck
