When to pick which component of the generalized eigenvector to be zero


Vivian Ngo:
In 7.8, the solutions often mention picking n1 = 0 or n2 = 0 or n3 = 0 for the generalized eigenvector. How do we decide which one to make zero? It seems that picking different ones yield different answers.

Victor Ivrii:
It happens when we have several eigenvectors with the same eigenvalue; then we get different fundamental systems, but we get different descriptions of the same solutions
