(2) Ax = x

Here A is a given square matrix, an unknown scalar, and

x an unknown vector.

The solutions to (1) are given the following names: The s

that satisfy (1) are called eigenvalues of A and the

corresponding nonzero xs that also satisfy (1) are called

eigenvectors of A.

Eigenvalues

The eigenvalues of a square matrix A are the roots of the

characteristic equation of A.

Hence an n n matrix has at least one eigenvalue and at most n

numerically different eigenvalues.

Equation (1) written in components is

Transferring the terms on the right side to the left side, we

have

We see that this is a homogeneous linear system. By

Cramers theorem, it has a solution (an eigenvector of A we

are looking for) if and only if its coefficient determinant is

zero, that is,

We thus obtain as eigenvectors of A, for instance, [1 1]

T

corresponding to

(or a

nonzero scalar multiple of these).

These vectors make 45 and 135 angles with the positive

They give the principal directions, the answer to our

problem.

The eigenvalues show that in the principal directions the

membrane is stretched by factors 8 and 2, respectively; see
