Student[LinearAlgebra][EigenvectorsTutor] - interactive matrix eigenvectors

Calling Sequence

EigenvectorsTutor(M)

Parameters

M

-

square Matrix

Description

• 

The EigenvectorsTutor(M) command presents the techniques used in finding the eigenvectors of the square matrix M by:

1. 

Finding the eigenvalues

2. 

Solving the equation Idti+M=0 for each eigenvalue ti

• 

The Matrix M must be square and of dimension 4 at most.

• 

Floating-point numbers in M are converted to rationals before computation begins.

• 

If the symbolic expression representing an eigenvalue grows too large, then the value displayed in the Maplet application window is a floating-point approximation to it (obtained by applying evalf).  The underlying computations continue to be performed using exact arithmetic, however.

• 

The EigenvectorsTutor(M) command returns the eigenvectors as a set of column Vectors.
