Grahic Jump Location
Effect of scaling matrix [D] on typical eigenvector. Portions of eigenvector scaled by d are considered to be in the localized region of the structure.
Grahic Jump Location
(a) Effect of eigenvector scaling on system description terms. (Stiffness component submatrix shown as typical.) Note that as the number of diagonals in the system description increases, the number of terms affected by scaling also increases. (b) Spring-mass system with tri-diagonal description, as given in Fig. 2(a).
