ab: Summary: 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.
