Visualizing Linear Transformations With Mathematica

  1. Oct 29, 2013 #1
    I am trying to figure out if there is some way that I could have mathematica generate a Cartesian coordinate system whose axes would shift according to some linear transformation that I apply to it.

    I have been able to find a tool on mathematica's website that will show how the transformation changes a polygon ( http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/LinearTransformationsOfAPolygon ) but not one that will change the coordinate system.

    ( I think that seeing this would help people understand what is actually happening when you try and find an eigenvector.)
    Thanks for any help.
