5 - 2 Eigenvectors S. Lall, Stanford 2009.09.28.02 Eigenvectors and eigenvalues λ C is an eigenvalue of A C n × n if X ( λ ) = det( λI A ) = 0 equivalent to: there exists nonzero v C n s.t. ( λI A ) v = 0 , i.e. , Av = λv any such v is called an eigenvector of A (associated with eigenvalue λ ) there exists nonzero w C n s.t. w T ( λI A ) = 0 , i.e. , w T A = λw T any such w is called a left eigenvector of A
5 - 3 Eigenvectors S. Lall, Stanford 2009.09.28.02 Properties if v is an eigenvector of A with eigenvalue λ , then so is αv , for any α C , α negationslash = 0 even when A is real, eigenvalue λ and eigenvector v can be complex when A and λ are real, we can always find a real eigenvector v associated with λ : if Av = λv , with A R n × n , λ R , and v C n , then A Re v = λ Re v, A Im v = λ Im v so Re v and Im v

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
