*characteristic polynomial*of $\mathbf{A}$ and its zeros are the eigenvalues of $\mathbf{A}$. The*multiplicity*of an eigenvalue is its multiplicity as a zero of the characteristic polynomial (§3.8(i)). … … ►When $\mathbf{A}$ is a symmetric matrix, the left and right eigenvectors coincide, yielding $\kappa (\lambda )=1$, and the calculation of its eigenvalues is a well-conditioned problem. … ►Its characteristic polynomial can be obtained from the recursion …
