Info request [Apr. 16th, 2010|01:19 pm]

I need to understand the nitty gritty details of Eigenvalue decomposition - especially focusing on the eigenfunction portion of the program. Does anyone have suggestions of sources to read up about this? I'm thinking textbooks or technical papers - but I'm open to most anything. My 18.03 textbook just isn't cutting it.

Thanks.

You are reminding me that I've forgotten almost everything mathematical that I used to think I knew. :) I wasn't able to find a useful-looking treatment in that dusty shelf full of math textbooks next to me, although the 6.003 text, Circuits, Signals, and Systems, looked like it had a brief discourse on it, that I didn't read too closely. (Not my favorite course even back then.) I have a feeling it's not as in-depth as you're looking for, but maybe wandering that section of a bookstore would yield something?
