This may not be the appropriate place to post this question, but I'm
sure someone has the answer. I am trying to extract the eigenvector
with the largest corresponding eigenvalue from an array of
eigenvectors. As you would expect, the array of eigenvalues contains
array([ 0.6 +0.j , -0.16037672+0.27778062j,
-0.16037672-0.27778062j, 0.32075343+0.j ])
When I try and call max() on this array, I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: no ordering relation is defined for complex numbers
What is the appropriate method for extracting the maximum value from this array?
