# Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors in Geology

Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors in Geology
In a square matrix, eigenvectors are usually represented by the non-zero vectors that when multiplied by the matrix; remain parallel to the initial vector. The corresponding eigenvalue for each eigenvector is the factor with which the eigenvector is scaled whenever multiplied by the matrix. Eigen values/vectors are widely used in various areas including physics, biology, economics, sociology, engineering, geology, and statistics. Engineers mainly use Eigen values/vectors to reduce noise in cars, vibration analysis, structural analysis, stereo systems, and material analysis (Trigg 36).
In geology, particularly when geologists are studying glacial till, Eigen values/vectors assist in summarization of the information of the clasts constituents’ orientation/dip into a 3-D Space. A geologist first collects the data for various clasts in the selected soil sample and later on the data is compared graphically using a Steronet on a Wulff Net or a Tri-Plot diagram. The output of the orientation tensor is usually in three perpendicular axes of space, which have three eigenvectors ordered v1, v2, and v3. Their corresponding Eigen values include E1, E2, and E3, in which E1>E2>E3 (Cs.mcgill.ca 1).
In terms of strength, v1 is classified as the primary orientation/dip, while v2 as the secondary, and v3 the tertiary orientation/dip. The clasts orientation is got by calculating the direction of the corresponding eigenvector. If all the Eigen values are equal (E1=E2=E3), then it is concluded that the fabric is isotropic. If the first two Eigen values are equal, and greater than the third value (E1=E2>E3), the fabric is planar. In a situation whereby E1>E2>E3, the fabric is considered to be linear (Wikipedia 1).

# Our Service Charter

1. ### Excellent Quality / 100% Plagiarism-Free

We employ a number of measures to ensure top quality essays. The papers go through a system of quality control prior to delivery. We run plagiarism checks on each paper to ensure that they will be 100% plagiarism-free. So, only clean copies hit customers’ emails. We also never resell the papers completed by our writers. So, once it is checked using a plagiarism checker, the paper will be unique. Speaking of the academic writing standards, we will stick to the assignment brief given by the customer and assign the perfect writer. By saying “the perfect writer” we mean the one having an academic degree in the customer’s study field and positive feedback from other customers.
2. ### Free Revisions

We keep the quality bar of all papers high. But in case you need some extra brilliance to the paper, here’s what to do. First of all, you can choose a top writer. It means that we will assign an expert with a degree in your subject. And secondly, you can rely on our editing services. Our editors will revise your papers, checking whether or not they comply with high standards of academic writing. In addition, editing entails adjusting content if it’s off the topic, adding more sources, refining the language style, and making sure the referencing style is followed.
3. ### Confidentiality / 100% No Disclosure

We make sure that clients’ personal data remains confidential and is not exploited for any purposes beyond those related to our services. We only ask you to provide us with the information that is required to produce the paper according to your writing needs. Please note that the payment info is protected as well. Feel free to refer to the support team for more information about our payment methods. The fact that you used our service is kept secret due to the advanced security standards. So, you can be sure that no one will find out that you got a paper from our writing service.
4. ### Money Back Guarantee

If the writer doesn’t address all the questions on your assignment brief or the delivered paper appears to be off the topic, you can ask for a refund. Or, if it is applicable, you can opt in for free revision within 14-30 days, depending on your paper’s length. The revision or refund request should be sent within 14 days after delivery. The customer gets 100% money-back in case they haven't downloaded the paper. All approved refunds will be returned to the customer’s credit card or Bonus Balance in a form of store credit. Take a note that we will send an extra compensation if the customers goes with a store credit.

We have a support team working 24/7 ready to give your issue concerning the order their immediate attention. If you have any questions about the ordering process, communication with the writer, payment options, feel free to join live chat. Be sure to get a fast response. They can also give you the exact price quote, taking into account the timing, desired academic level of the paper, and the number of pages.
