### Eigenvectors of a tensor in $\mathbb{C}^2 \otimes \mathbb{C}^2 \otimes \mathbb{C}^2$

I want to find the critical point of tensor $f=a_0b_0c_0 + a_1b_1c_1$ in $\mathbb{C}^2 \otimes \mathbb{C}^2 \otimes \mathbb{C}^2$, and I followed this construction: First, I take the following partial ...

### Fast decay of eigenvector elements

Let A be a set of similar (symmetric) matrices, sharing the same eigenvalues. I understand that their eigenvectors would be different. Let us focus on one eigenvector (e.g. corresponding to the lowest ...

### Conjugate gradient and the eigenvectors corresponding to the large eigenvalues [closed]

I am working on an optimization problem (for example, conjugate gradient) to solve $Ax=b$, where $A$ is a symmetric positive definite matrix. I can understand that the CG (conjugate gradient) has ...

### Find a way to apply the MLE on Fisher or Covariance matrix to make cross-correlations

I have 2 Fisher matrixes which represent information for the same variables (I mean columns/rows represent the same parameters in the 2 matrixes). Now I would like to make the cross-correlations ...

### Infinite positive matrices with probability eigenvector

Let $A$ be an infinite non-negative matrix with integer entries ($a_{ij} \geq 0, \forall i,j \in \mathbb N$). Suppose that $A$ is irreducible, aperiodic, and recurrent. So that it satisfies the ...

### Can I assign the term “is eigenvector” and “is eigenmatrix” of matrix $P$ in my specific (infinite-size) case?

Remark: I asked this in MSE, the question got views and votes but seemingly no one had an answer so far. Background: I'm rereading a couple of my exploratory (surely not research-level) math-essays ...

### Eigenvectors of Kronecker Product [closed]

Conjecture If $A$ and $B$ are two complex square matrices, then every eigenvector of $A\otimes B$ is of the form $x\otimes y$, where $x$ is an eigenvector of $A$ and $y$ is an eigenvector of $B$. ...

### What is known about the eigenvectors of the $2^n \times 2^n$ Hadamard matrix?

What is known about the eigenvectors of the $2^n \times 2^n$ Hadamard matrix defined recursively by $H_1=(1)$ and $$H_N=\begin{pmatrix}H_{N/2} & H_{N/2} \\ H_{N/2} & -H_{N/2}\end{pmatrix},$$ ...

### Leading eigenvector value problem as an optimisation problem for asymmetric matrices

As noted in 1806.05647, given a symmetric matrix $A$, the leading eigenvector value problem (LEVP) $$Av = \lambda v,$$ where $A = A^T \in \mathbb{R}^{n \times n}$, $\lambda$ is the largest ...
