INTRODUCTION
If the action of a matrix on a (nonzero)
vector changes its magnitude but not its
direction, then the vector is called an
eigenvector of that matrix. Each eigenvector
is, in effect, multiplied by a scalar, called the
eigenvalue corresponding to that
eigenvector.
Properties of eigenvalues

Let A be an n x n matrix with eigenvalues λi, i =


1,2,...,n. Then

* Trace of A = λ1 + λ2 + ..... + λn.


* Determinant of A = λ1λ2....λn.
* Eigenvalues of Ak are \lambda_1k,....,\lambda_nk
* If A = AH, i.e. A is Hermitian, every eigenvalue
is real.
* Every eigenvalue of a Unitary matrix has
absolute value | λ | = 1.
