It turns out that a matrix like $A$, whose entries are positive and whose columns add up to one (try it!), is called a Markov matrix, and it always has $\lambda = 1$ as its largest eigenvalue. That means there's a value of $v_t$ for which $Av_t =\lambda v_t = 1 v_t = v_t$. via Pocket

Eigenvalues/vectors are instrumental to understanding electrical circuits, mechanical systems, ecology and even Google's PageRank algorithm. Let's see if visualization can make these ideas more intuitive.

Fibonacci Sequence
Suppose you have some amoebas in a petri dish. Every minute, all adult amoebas produce one child amoeba, and all child amoebas grow into adults (Note: this is not really how amoebas reproduce.). So if t

is a minute, the equation of this system is

I think this is actually a lot more interesting for the interactive parts than it is for the linear algebra.
