# What do the eigenvalues represent?

The set of all

**eigenvectors**of a linear transformation, each paired with its corresponding**eigenvalue**, is called the eigensystem of that transformation. The set of all**eigenvectors**of T corresponding to the same**eigenvalue**, together with the zero vector, is called an eigenspace or characteristic space of T.A.

### What is an Eigenspaces?

**Eigenspace**. If is an square matrix and is an

**eigenvalue**of , then the union of the zero vector and the set of all

**eigenvectors**corresponding to eigenvalues is a subspace of known as the

**eigenspace**of . SEE ALSO: Eigen Decomposition,

**Eigenvalue**, Eigenvector.

#### What does it mean for a matrix to be diagonalizable?

**Diagonalizable matrix**. Diagonalization is the process of finding a corresponding diagonal**matrix**for a**diagonalizable matrix**or linear map. A square**matrix**that is not**diagonalizable**is called defective.#### What is the algebraic multiplicity of an eigenvalue?

Definition: the algebraic**multiplicity**of an**eigenvalue**e is the power to which (λ – e) divides the characteristic polynomial. Definition: the**geometric multiplicity**of an**eigenvalue**is the number of linearly independent**eigenvectors**associated with it. That is, it is the dimension of the nullspace of A – eI.#### What are the characteristics of polynomials?

**Characteristic polynomial**. In linear algebra, the**characteristic polynomial**of a square matrix is a**polynomial**which is invariant under matrix similarity and has the eigenvalues as roots. It has the determinant and the trace of the matrix as coefficients.

### What does it mean to Diagonalize a matrix?

**Matrix diagonalization**is the process of taking a square

**matrix**and converting it into a special type of

**matrix**--a so-called diagonal

**matrix**--that shares the same fundamental properties of the underlying

**matrix**. Similarly, the eigenvectors make up the new set of axes corresponding to the diagonal

**matrix**.

#### Are all matrices Diagonalizable?

The diagonalization theorem states that an**matrix**is**diagonalizable**if and only if has linearly independent eigenvectors, i.e., if the**matrix**rank of the**matrix**formed by the eigenvectors is .**All**normal**matrices**are**diagonalizable**, but not**all diagonalizable matrices**are normal.#### Are the eigenvectors linearly independent?

**Linear**Combination of**Eigenvectors**is Not an**Eigenvector**Suppose that and are two distinct eigenvalues of a square matrix and let and be**eigenvectors**corresponding to and , respectively. Express as a**Linear**Combination Determine whether the following set of vectors is**linearly independent**or**linearly**dependent.#### What is the eigen space?

**Eigenspace**. If is an square matrix and is an**eigenvalue**of , then the union of the zero vector and the set of all eigenvectors corresponding to eigenvalues is a subspace of known as the**eigenspace**of .

### What is eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrix?

In essence, an

**eigenvector**v of a linear transformation T is a non-zero vector that, when T is applied to it, does not change direction. Applying T to the**eigenvector**only scales the**eigenvector**by the scalar value λ, called an**eigenvalue**. This condition can be written as the equation.#### What is the betweenness centrality?

In graph theory,**betweenness centrality**is a measure of**centrality**in a graph based on shortest paths. The**betweenness centrality**for each vertex is the number of these shortest paths that pass through the vertex.#### What is the definition of betweenness?

**Definition of betweenness**. : the quality or state of being between two others in an ordered mathematical set.#### What is the betweenness of a figure?

**Betweenness of Points**By definition, a**point**B is between two other**points**A and C if all three**points**are collinear and AB + BC = AC. Although this definition is unambiguous and easy to state, it is not always easy to work with in proofs, because we may not always know what the distances AB, BC, and AC are.
