Diagonalization and Jordan Normal Form--Motivation through "Maple"[R]
Glaister, P.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v40 n5 p705-712 2009
Following an introduction to the diagonalization of matrices, one of the more difficult topics for students to grasp in linear algebra is the concept of Jordan normal form. In this note, we show how the important notions of diagonalization and Jordan normal form can be introduced and developed through the use of the computer algebra package "Maple"[R].
