It's done. You certainly should have felt free to add it yourself - everyone is an editor! Ccreitz (talk) 22:11, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
This fellow had a wide girth: he embraces his contradictions.

EigenvalueEdit

The eigenvalue (German: Eigenwert), as a value of the wave function an expression of quantum physics, has nothing to do with the name Eigen, but derives from the German word "eigenes" (an adjective, meaning own), in conjunctions Eigen-. Is this fact worth to be mentioned here? Pro: Manfred Eigen has to do with physics. Contra: In English eigenvalue is written with small initial letter.

In German the analogous situation is different: Contra: Everybody knows about the meaning of eigenes resp. Eigen- and tends to decode the German word Eigenwert (German noun with capital letter) in this direction. --Helium4 (talk) 05:49, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
