I need a bit of explanation on the conditions under which there is an eigenvalue that is equal to zero and what it's "physical" meaning.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks in advance.
um, actually no physics, just math class, I was trying to get a better understanding of eigenvalues and how those two say something about each other, matrices and eigenvalues/vectors that is...
By definition, an eigenvalue c will be a solution to det(A-cI)=0. If c=0, then det(A)=0.

Really?
Let A = cI, then det(A-cI)=0, but det(A) is not equal to 0. How did you deduce that conclusion?
