2. Eigenvector
A unit length vector that retains its direction when multiplied to the matrix that it corresponds to. An (n * n) matrix can have as many as n unique eigenvectors, each of which will have its own eigenvalue.

3. eigenvector
For each eigenvalue L of a square matrix A there is an associated right eigenvector, denoted b that has the dimension of the number of rows of A. The right eigenvector satisfies: Ab = Lb Contexts: linear algebra

4. eigenvector
(from the article `algebra, linear`) When studying linear transformations, it is extremely useful to find nonzero vectors whose direction is left unchanged by the transformation. These ...

5. eigenvector
If a (scalar) value, t, satisfies Ax = tx for some vector, x not= 0, it is an eigenvalue of the matrix A, and x is an eigenvector. In mathematical programming this arises in the context of convergence analysis, where A is the hessian of some merit function, such as the objective or Lagrangian.
