Eigenvector

An eigenvector of a linear transformation (operator) is a nonzero vector that changes at most by a scalar factor when that linear transformation is applied to it.

 


Explanation

In applications in the natural sciences the eigenvector, which belongs to an eigenvalue, is also called an eigenstate because it concerns a special state of the described system.
