The comma (",") operator in C/C++ is tricky: it just evaluates to the
last operhand. So i = (3, 6); will be equivalent to i = 6; To represent
complex numbers in C++, you need the std::complex data type (that is
what Eigen users internally for VectorXcd).

What you want to do is construct a new std::complex (double in this
case) with specific real and imaginary parts:

ComplexVector(i) = std::complex<double>(FirstVector(i), SecondVector(i));

Or, even easier (and probably slightly faster), you could replace the
entire loop by the following two statements, Eigen will take care of the
rest internally:

ComplexVector.real() = FirstVector;
ComplexVector.imag() = SecondVector;
