This thread seems to make a stronger assertion: "() compatible operators are guaranteed only to have the same eigenvectors, not the same eigenvalues. We study the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of a spectral problem for the Laplacian in a domain with rapidly oscillating boundary. Thus if we have a function f(x) and an operator A^, then Af^ (x) is a some new function, say ˚(x). Solving an eigenvalue problem means ﬁnding all its eigenvalues and associated eigenfunctions. In other words, when A operates on one of its eigenfunctions, say !3, the result is a3!3 - just !3 back again. Then utilize the computational routines of your favorite computational linear algebra package to solve the eigenvalue problem. So $\lambda=0$ is the only eigenvalue, and the eigenfunctions would be the functions orthogonal to the span, but why do you need to check sin(2x)? $\endgroup$ - Areedd Aug 20 '17 at 2:53 $\begingroup$ You are right it is clear that only functions which are in the $\operatorname{ran} K$ can be eigenfunctions to an eigenvalue $\lambda \neq 0$. these eigenvalue problems|particularly the types of singularities which can occur in the eigenfunctions. We have already described the solutions in Chap. ) is called an eigenfunction of the operator and is the eigenvalue. This is called an eigenvalue problem (as in linear algebra). Simultaneous eigenvalues of L2 and L z Let us denote simultaneous eigenfunctions of the operator L2 and L z as Ylm(θ,φ). This approximate operator has eigenvalues that are mathematically related to the time eigenvalues of the neutron transport equation. We know that the eigenvalues of the Laplacian contains a lot of information of a Riemannian manifold, but they do not determine the full information ( Hearing the shape of a drum). We show that formulating the quantum time of arrival problem in a segment of the real line suggests rephrasing the quantum time of arrival problem to finding states that evolve to unitarily collapse at a given point at a definite time. A novel method to compute time eigenvalues of neutron transport problems is presented based on solutions to the time dependent transport equation. Using these solutions we use the dynamic mode decomposition to form an approximate transport operator. The Legendre Polynomials 3. ent eigenvalues), then these two operators must commute.
