## ANS: What is eigen vector

If λ = λ

_{1}be any characteristic root of the n-rowed square matrix A = [a_{ij}] and if for this value of λ, the characteristic equation | A – λI | = 0, is satisfied and as such the equation [A – λ_{1}I] X = 0 has non-trivial solution for X. Every such non-trivial solution X is called a characteristic vector of A. As the system of equations given by [A – λ_{1}I] X = 0 is homogeneous, it is obvious of X is a characteristic vector of A, then for k ≠ 0, kX is also a characteristic vector of A corresponding to the some characteristic root λ = λ_{1}.Like Us On Facebook for All Latest Updates
