Hello,
I have a 8x8 identity eigenvalue matrix (ss) and the answer 4x8 eigenvector matrix (ivect). I'm unsure of the process to get to the eigenvector matrix.

I presume that you've obtained these eigenvalues by calling the 'eig' function in MATLAB. You may try calling the same with a second output argument to obtain corresponding eigenvectors as well -
[A,B] = eig(m1);
I suggest going through the documentation of 'eig' for a fuller understanding, if requried - The exmaples, in particular, may be useful.
Hope it Helps!
