JordanDecomposition

JordanDecomposition[m]

yields the Jordan decomposition of a square matrix m. The result is a list {s,j} where s is a similarity matrix and j is the Jordan canonical form of m.

Details

  • The original matrix m is equal to s.j.Inverse[s]. »
  • The matrix m can be either numerical or symbolic.
