Please help - quick eigen vector questionWatch
When you find 3 eigen values and then 3 corresponding eigen vectors for a matrix, where you normalise them and form a 3x3 matrix (from the eigen vectors) does it matter in which order you put the 3 eignevectors you found?
Just to confirm a second case.
Does the order in which you put eigen veectors also not matter in the following question:
Find an orthogonal matrix P such that P(to the T)AP diagonalises the symmetric matrix A, where A = bla bla (3x3 matrix)
Does its not matter which order you pu the eigne vectors in.
However when you evaluate P(to the T)AP will be a different. It should be all zeros apart from the leading diagonal which will the be eigenvalues, will it matter if they are in different places.
Btw P(to the T) - i mean the transpose of P.
