Homework Help: Practical applications of eigenvectors

  1. Nov 22, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A simple eigenvector problem using a 2x2 matrix.

    2. Relevant equations
    [tex]Ax = \lambda x[/tex]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't have one. I know and understand the theory behind eigenvectors, but I cannot think of a practical application. I need to create a problem that uses eigenvalues/eigenvectors as a solution.
