Re: Cannot solve 3x3 Eigensystem


Hi, kdittmer

I can't understand what tou mean by "exact" solution.
Your solution containing Root objects is exact.
Anyway, you can use the Built in function ToRadicals.

$Version
 5.1 for Microsoft Windows (October 25, 2004)

??ToRadicals
ToRadicals[expr] attempts to express all Root objects in expr in terms
of radicals.More...
Attributes[ToRadicals]={Protected}
Options[ToRadicals]={Cubicsï?®True,Quarticsï?®True}

However, what you get is a huge expression that I donâ??t know if it
useful for you.

BTW, while version 5.1 needs 0.375 sec. in my system to execute the
command

 FullSimplify[Eigensystem[{{a1, b1, 0}, {b1, a2, b2}, {0, b2, a3}},
Cubics-> True], {b1, b2, a1, a2, a3} ï?? Reals]

in version 5.2, I could not obtain the result of above command after 3
minutes so I give up.
I guess something here.
Any ideas?
