JordanDecomposition

FilledSmallSquare 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.

FilledSmallSquare The original matrix m is equal to s . j . Inverse[s].

FilledSmallSquare The matrix m can be either numerical or symbolic.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 3.7.10.
