EigenVa(M) = Eigenvalues of square matrix M

EigenVa(M) = Eigenvalues of square matrix M:

Returns a column vector containing all n eigenvalues of the n by n matrix M. The eigenvalues are sorted in ascending order.

One way to compute the eigenvalues V of square matrix M is to find the roots of the characteristic polynomial. P = CharPoly(M), then V = PolRoots(P).
