For spin-1/2, the eigenvalues of [itex]S_x, S_y[/itex] and [itex]S_z[/itex] are always [itex]\pm \frac{\hbar}{2}[/itex] for spin-up and spin-down, correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the difference between eigenvectors, eigenstates and eigenspinors? I believe eigenstates = eigenspinors and eigenvectors are something else? I'm just getting confused, because my teachers use the letter [itex]\chi[/itex] for everything.
