Hello,
I have found a paper describing an interesting method for protein sequence analysis (CABIOS vol.6 no.2 1990 pp7180), but couldn`t understand the following:
transpose of 1 or 2 dim. matrix unitary vector eigenvector
Anyone willing to explain these to a biologist, please? If so, contact me by email.
Fragments of the paper:
...Then the power spectrum Ps(v) of h may be written: [ ] where nt is the transpose of n. ...
...where Ws(v) is a nonnegative definite symmetrical matrix. Thus, the unitary vector n0 which maximizes Ps(v) is the eigenvector of Ws(v) associated with the largest eigenvalue l0(lambda zero).
Thanks,
