Function: eigenvalues (<M>)
Function: eivals (<M>) Returns a list of two lists containing the eigenvalues of the matrix <M>. The first sublist of the return value is the list of eigenvalues of the matrix, and the second sublist is the list of the multiplicities of the eigenvalues in the corresponding order.
eivals is a synonym for
eigenvalues calls the function
solve to find the roots of the characteristic polynomial of the matrix. Sometimes
solve may not be able to find the roots of the polynomial; in that case some other functions in this package (except
gramschmidt) will not work.
In some cases the eigenvalues found by
solve may be complicated expressions. (This may happen when
solve returns a not-so-obviously real expression for an eigenvalue which is known to be real.) It may be possible to simplify the eigenvalues using some other functions.
eigen.mac is loaded automatically when

eigen.mac is not already loaded,
load ("eigen") loads it. After loading, all functions and variables in the package are available.
