This contribution deals with the identification of the right-eigenvectors of a linear vibration system with arbitrary n degrees of freedom as given in [1]. Applying the special distribution of stiffnesses and masses given in [1] yields a remarkable sequence of matrices for arbi- trary n. For computing the (right-)eigenvectors a generalised approach allowing the use of Laguerre polynomials is performed.
