Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • 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 Plex

  • 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.

    A Third Choice (ID Hypothesis)

  • 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 B-measurements.

    Quantum Mechanics

  • The annullment of eigenvectors on the Weyl tensor gives the N-type solutions, of which the pp-waves for gravity waves are an example of.

    Dark Matter: Still Dark.

  • 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.

    Science and Unobservable Things

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

    Does Space Expand?

  • Why eigenvalues and eigenvectors (a.k.a. eigenstates)?

    Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Quantum Mechanics, But Were Afraid to Ask

  • This classification involves Killing eigenvectors of the Weyl curvature.

    A Dark, Misleading Force

  • In effect, as you go from 0 to m retained PCs, you define a path from PLS to OLS in which each step is generated by …, the truncated eigenvector matrix with 1,2,..,m eigenvectors.
