Given a vector ##\vec{r} = x \hat{x} + y \hat{y}## is possbile to write it as ##\vec{r} = r \hat{r}## being ##r = \sqrt{x^2+y^2}## and ##\hat{r} = \cos(\theta) \hat{x} + \sin(\theta) \hat{y}##. Speaking about matrices now, the the eigenvalues are like the modulus of a vector and the eigenvectors are like the unit vectors associated to modulus of a vector?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
