1 37 Chapter 7 Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors 7 Applications of Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors Model population growth using an age transition matri and an age distribution vector, and find a stable age distribution vector Use a matri equation to solve a sstem of first-order linear differential equations Find the matri of a quadratic form and use the Principal Aes Theorem to perform a rotation of aes for a conic and a quadric surface POPULATION GROWTH Matrices can be used to form models for population growth The first step in this process is to group the population into age classes of equal duration For instance, if the maimum life span of a member is L ears, then the following n intervals represent the age classes, L n L n, L n n L, L n First age class Second age class nth age class The age distribution vector represents the number of population members in each age class, where n Over a period of Ln ears, the probabilit that a member of the ith age class will survive to become a member of the i th age class is given b p i, where p i, i,,, n The average number of offspring produced b a member of the ith age class is given b b i, where b i, i,,, n These numbers can be written in matri form, as follows A b p Multipling this age transition matri b the age distribution vector for a specific time period produces the age distribution vector for the net time period That is, A i i b p Number in first age class Number in second age class Number in nth age class b 3 Eample illustrates this procedure b n p n b n

2 7 Applications of Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors 373 A Population Growth Model REMARK If the pattern of growth in Eample continued for another ear, then the rabbit population would be 3 A 8 5 From the age distribution vectors,, and 3, ou can see that the percent of rabbits in each of the three age classes changes each ear To obtain a stable growth pattern, one in which the percent in each age class remains the same each ear, the n th age distribution vector must be a scalar multiple of the nth age distribution vector That is, n A n n Eample shows how to solve this problem A population of rabbits has the following characteristics a Half of the rabbits survive their first ear Of those, half survive their second ear The maimum life span is 3 ears b During the first ear, the rabbits produce no offspring The average number of offspring is during the second ear and 8 during the third ear The population now consists of rabbits in the first age class, in the second, and in the third How man rabbits will there be in each age class in ear? The current age distribution vector is and the age transition matri is A 5 5 After ear, the age distribution vector will be A 5 age < age < age age < age < age 3 Finding a Stable Age Distribution Vector Simulation Eplore this concept further with an electronic simulation available at wwwcengagebraincom Find a stable age distribution vector for the population in Eample To solve this problem, find an eigenvalue and a corresponding eigenvector such that A The characteristic polnomial of A is I A (check this), which implies that the eigenvalues are and Choosing the positive value, let Verif that the corresponding eigenvectors are of the form For instance, if t, then the initial age distribution vector would be t t t t age < age < age 3 and the age distribution vector for the net ear would be 8 age < A 5 8 age < 5 age 3 3 Notice that the ratio of the three age classes is still : :, and so the percent of the population in each age class remains the same

5 37 Chapter 7 Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors QUADRATIC FORMS Eigenvalues and eigenvectors can be used to solve the rotation of aes problem introduced in Section 8 Recall that classifing the graph of the quadratic equation a b c d e f Quadratic equation is fairl straightforward as long as the equation has no -term (that is, b ) If the equation has an -term, however, then the classification is accomplished most easil b first performing a rotation of aes that eliminates the -term The resulting equation (relative to the new -aes) will then be of the form You will see that the coefficients and are eigenvalues of the matri A a b The epression b c a b c a c d e f a Quadratic form is called the quadratic form associated with the quadratic equation a b c d e f c and the matri A is called the matri of the quadratic form Note that the matri A is smmetric Moreover, the matri A will be diagonal if and onl if its corresponding quadratic form has no -term, as illustrated in Eample 5 Finding the Matri of a Quadratic Form Figure = Find the matri of the quadratic form associated with each quadratic equation a 9 3 b a Because a, b, and c 9, the matri is A b Because a 3, b, and c 3, the matri is A Diagonal matri (no -term) Nondiagonal matri ( -term) Figure ( ) ( ) 3 + = = In standard form, the equation 9 3 is which is the equation of the ellipse shown in Figure 73 Although it is not apparent b inspection, the graph of the equation is similar In fact, when ou rotate the - and -aes counterclockwise 5 to form a new -coordinate sstem, this equation takes the form 3 3 which is the equation of the ellipse shown in Figure 7 To see how to use the matri of a quadratic form to perform a rotation of aes, let X

6 Then the quadratic epression a b c d e f matri form as follows can be written in If b, then no rotation is necessar But if b, then because A is smmetric, ou can appl Theorem 7 to conclude that there eists an orthogonal matri P such that P T AP D is diagonal So, if ou let then it follows that X PX, and X T AX PX T APX X T P T APX X T DX The choice of the matri P must be made with care Because P is orthogonal, its determinant will be ± It can be shown (see Eercise 5) that if P is chosen so that, then P will be of the form P X T AX d ex f a b P T X X P cos sin 7 Applications of Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors 377 sin cos b c d e a b c d e f f where gives the angle of rotation of the conic measured from the positive -ais to the positive -ais This leads to the Principal Aes Theorem REMARK Note that the matri product d epx has the form d cos e sin d sin e cos Principal Aes Theorem For a conic whose equation is a b c d e f, the rotation given b X PX eliminates the -term when P is an orthogonal matri, with, that diagonalies A That is, P P T AP where and are eigenvalues of A The equation of the rotated conic is given b d epx f Rotation of a Conic Perform a rotation of aes to eliminate the -term in the quadratic equation The matri of the quadratic form associated with this equation is A Because the characteristic polnomial of A is 8 8 (check this), it follows that the eigenvalues of A are 8 and 8 So, the equation of the rotated conic is which, when written in the standard form 3 is the equation of an ellipse (See Figure 7)

7 378 Chapter 7 Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors In Eample, the eigenvectors of the matri A are and which ou can normalie to form the columns of P, as follows cos sin P sin cos Note first that P, which implies that P is a rotation Moreover, because cos 5 sin 5, the angle of rotation is 5, as shown in Figure 7 The orthogonal matri P specified in the Principal Aes Theorem is not unique Its entries depend on the ordering of the eigenvalues and and on the subsequent choice of eigenvectors and For instance, in the solution of Eample, an of the following choices of P would have worked 8, , 8 8, 8 35 For an of these choices of P, the graph of the rotated conic will, of course, be the same (See Figure 75) ( ) ( ) 3 + = ( ) ( ) + 3 = ( ) ( ) + 3 = Figure 75 The following summaries the steps used to appl the Principal Aes Theorem Form the matri A and find its eigenvalues and Find eigenvectors corresponding to and Normalie these eigenvectors to form the columns of P P 3 If, then multipl one of the columns of P b to obtain a matri of the form P cos sin sin cos The angle represents the angle of rotation of the conic 5 The equation of the rotated conic is d e PX f
