Can someone make the Eigenvector explanation a little more "plain language" for those of us who are mathematically challenged?  <--feeling dumb... [[Special:Contributions/108.28.72.186|108.28.72.186]] 05:45, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

:Thanks for your comment, I did mark this as incomplete and start to do an explain for non math people. But consider this: xkcd is "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language." Nevertheless, I try to work on this comic right now.--[[User:Dgbrt|Dgbrt]] ([[User talk:Dgbrt|talk]]) 20:11, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

The prefix 'eigen-' applied to the term is adopted from the German word eigen for "self-" or "unique to", "peculiar to", or "belonging to." As the eigenvector remains unchanged through the transformation of the matrix it can be used to describe something unique about that matrix.
 
 
The self for the shoe disappeared into the matrix leaving behind a transparency that could be used to decouple the background, thus exposing the required self. Several parts of the background are damaged in the search. On paper this is permissible. (Especially in fairy-stories.)

I find it amusing that the Poincaré conjecture is still called a conjecture. Wikipedia starts with the amusing statement "the Poincaré conjecture ... is a theorem." I couldn't find it, but I'd guess that there's probably a lovely discussion on that topic on the talk page. [[User:Gman314|Gman314]] ([[User talk:Gman314|talk]]) 22:30, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Has anyone written any of these stories? I want to read them now. [[Special:Contributions/199.27.128.188|199.27.128.188]] 19:31, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
