YouTube Video


00:00-00:41 We want to find the new axes algebraically.
00:41-03:45 Algebraic description of the 'wall' and the 'flow' directions.
03:45-04:36 The problem of finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
04:36-12:34 Example: finding eigenvalues.
12:34-19:55 Example: finding eigenvectors -- 'wall' direction.
19:55-21:52 Example: finding eigenvectors -- 'flow' direction.
21:52-22:45 The 'wall' direction is perpendicular to the 'flow' direction.
22:45-26:34 Physical meaning of eigenvalues. Incompressibility of liquid.
