JORDAN: Jordan block

from the MMDELI

Matrix Generator JORDAN
Source: N. J. Higham
Discipline: numerical linear algebra
Language: Java applet
Output format: Matrix Market format

This is a Java applet which generates a Jordan block, that is, a bidiagonal matrix with constant diagonal and ones on the first upper diagonal. The parameter (LAMBDA) specifies the repeated eigenvalue associated with this block.

The Jordan normal form of a matrix is a block diagonal matrix whose diagonal blocks are Jordan blocks.

This generator was developed by Bruce Miller of NIST based on Nick Higham's Test Matrix Toolbox for MATLAB.
