Samir - One obvious solution is X = c(1,1,..,1)' where c is any constant.
Other solutions are also in the null space of A'A. You can use Stata
(-matrix symeigen-) to find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of A'A. Then
any linear combination of eigenvectors correspinding to zero eigenvalues of
A'A will solve Ax = 0.

Dear statalisters,
How can I solve for matrix X in a matrix equations AX=0?, where A = a 
non-symmetric matrix with row sum equals zero and X consists of unknowns 
and 0 is zero matrix..
Best regards
