written by Paul Falstad
This applet simulates the operation of a 2x2 matrix geometrically. The simulation shows a 2D image of the transformation of unit vectors due to the matrix. It displays the values of the matrix coefficients, the eigenvectors and the determinant. The matrix can be transposed, inverted or rotated. The page also includes an extensive explanation, and the source.
