Eigenvalues: Valuable Principles
July/August 2005 (vol. 7 no. 4)
pp. 68-75
In this homework assignment, we'll study eigenvalue problems arising from partial differential equations. Eigenvalues help us solve differential equations analytically, but they also provide valuable information about a physical system's behavior. Specifically, we'll focus on eigenvalue properties and use them to design a drum with a particular fundamental frequency of vibration.
Index Terms:
eigenvalue, eigenvector, eigenfunction
