French term or phrase: diagonalisation
Dans ce cas, il n’est pas rare de retenir 2 ou 3 axes pour décrire correctement le nuage de points. Par exemple, examiner le plan factoriel 1-2, puis le plan 2-3. Ces valeurs propres sont obtenues à l’aide de calcul très compliqués que seul un ordinateur peut réaliser si le nombre de variables est supérieur à 3 : la diagonalisation de matrice.
