Eigenvalues

  • Eigenvalues[ m ] gives a list of the eigenvalues of the square matrix m.
  • Eigenvalues finds numerical eigenvalues if m contains approximate real numbers.
  • Repeated eigenvalues appear with their appropriate multiplicity.
  • An matrix gives a list of exactly eigenvalues, not necessarily distinct.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.8.3Section 3.7.9.
