- I am a bit doubtful, is the eigen problem only applicable for linear scenarios? Or are they also applicable for nonlinear scenarios. In linear algebra we are given the equation, Ax=λx. I understand this equation only works if A is a linear transformation of the vector x. Which as a result, produces a scaled value of the vector x. The linear transformation would have to abide by the fact that the origin is in place and that the grid lines are parallel. In reference to a blueBrown video:
This is with respect to the vector x.
