Eigenvectors in 2D

Select the coefficients of the matrix and drag the red arrow. The blue arrow shows the result of multiplication by . An eigenvector is represented by the alignment of the two arrows; the eigenvalue is the ratio of their lengths. The arrows can align twice, once, or not at all, depending on whether A has two eigenvalues, a single one, or no real eigenvalues.
