I'm undergoing a self study course on Structural Dynamics and have arrived at the following equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

KR = w^2 M R

where; M and K are positive definite matrices.

Can anyone please explain:

1) Why is this classified as a Eigen value problem? I will be grateful if you give amathematical explanationhere.

2) Why is this classified as a Eigen value problem? I will be grateful if you give aphysical interpretation/ explanationhere.

Please help..
