why are the eigenvectors in a square matrix which is diagonalised (only has numbers in the M_jj elements), just each column of the matrix? And why are the eigenvalues the actual number in each column.
I can understand if its diagonal, the matrix consists of linearly indepednent therefore orthogal vectors. Are these necessarily the eigenvectors of the matrix?
Many thanks
