A square matrix is similar either to a diagonal matrix or to a Jordan matrix, that is, a diagonal matrix with a mix of 1s and 0s on the superdiagonal. This month's article explores computations by which the matrix of transition to Jordan form can be constructed, and in so doing, illustrates some of the underlying theory.
