Visualize the Eigenvectors of a 2 x 2 or 3 x 3 matrix
visualizes the Eigenvectors of 2 x 2 or 3 x 3 matrix m.
For 2 x 2 matrices, the vector field generated by left-multiplying by the matrix is displayed on the unit circle, together with dashed lines indicating the Eigenvectors. It can be observed that the vectors are perpendicular to the unit circle only at the Eigenvector lines:
For 3 x 3 matrices, the vector field is plotted on the unit sphere:
