 JordanBlockMatrix
 construct a Matrix of Jordan blocks

 Calling Sequence JordanBlockMatrix(K, options)

Parameters

 K - list of ordered pairs of the form [eigenvalue, dimension] options - (optional) parameters; for a complete list, see LinearAlgebra[JordanBlockMatrix]

Description

 • The JordanBlockMatrix(K) command, where K is a list of ordered pairs [a, b], constructs a Matrix whose diagonal blocks are b-dimensional Jordan blocks defined by a.
