**Dec 24, 2010 4:13 pm**Ok I'm a bit numpty. Can someone break this down in simple calculus terminology because I'm having a hard time following what exactly is meant by the topology.

I understand eigen states you don't have to dumb it down too much but those eigenvectors look strange!?

I mean they appear not to be the usual uniform vectors but seem to be arbitrarily non Euclidean in form. Why is that and am I just wrong?

Vector mathematics is ok but I haven't studied tensors yet so if you want to expand my matrix understanding that's fine. just to set some parameters.
