Eigenvalues and eigenvectors           04/09/16

 

In Linear Algebra, Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues  are special sets of vectors and scalars respectively that  if one takes a Matrix A and multiplies it by some eigenvector xthen A*x=*x, with being the eigenvalue. To solve for the eigenvector, first set it up so the top right to bottom left diagonal values are subtracting an eigenvalue. Then take the determinant of the system and solve for zero. Those will be your eigenvalues. Then lug those eigenvectors in and solve for the equation to get your eigenvectors. I really have no fucking clue about how this works
