The eigenvectors are the directions in which a matrix A transforms a vector “eigenly”–it doesn’t change the vector’s direction, it only dilates it by the scalar amount z.

“Math professors love us because Google has made eigenvectors relevant to every matrix algebra student in America,” says Marissa Mayer.

In the case that the vector is normalized, it will, from (3.1), represent a possible state of the system, and in the event that it is the sum of a pair of eigenvectors of an observable B with distinct eigenvalues, it will not itself be an eigenvector of B, but will be associated, from (3. 4b), with a set of probabilities for showing one or another result in Bmeasurements.

Observe any N variables that are not fully correlated and you can summarize the information in an N by N correlation matrix which has N orthogonal real eigenvectors.

The solution types are determined by eigenvectors of the Weyl curvature and their eigenvalues.

The annullment of eigenvectors on the Weyl tensor gives the Ntype solutions, of which the ppwaves for gravity waves are an example of.

Now eigenvectors are basically symmetric or “stable” solutions, a classical example being the way a rotating rigid body evolves to rotate about a principle axis, and this symmetry is also a key aspect of my proposal.
