Let $P(\lambda)=\lambda M−L\in \mathbb{R}^{n \times n}$ be a matrix pencil with symmetric nonsingular matrix $M$ and $L$ is a weighted Laplacian matrix of a connected graph. Clearly $(0,1_n)$ is an eigenpair of $P(\lambda)$ and suppose $(\lambda_i,x_i) \in \mathbb{R} \times \mathbb{R}^n,\,i=1:n−1$ be the eigenpairs of $P(\lambda)$ then show that $x_i$ can be chosen such that $x^T_iLx_j=0\, \forall \,1\leq i\neq j \leq n−1$ and $x^T_iLx_i=1$ where $1_n$ denotes the vector with all entries are 1.
