Computing and Visualizing

Animation available here: https://bdshaff.github.io/bdshaff.github.io/blog/2020-03-23-computing-eigenvalues-and-eigenvectors/

What’s this about

  • First I’ll talk about what made me curious about how Eigenvalues are actually computed.
  • Then I’ll share my implementation of the simplest algorithm (QR method) and do some benchmarking.
  • Lastly, I’ll share how you can animate the steps the algorithm goes through to finds the Eigenvectors!
