Okay. Now, we looked at various things involving Jordan Form, and the real question was, what does it mean? I think we saw some of that from a dynamic point of view. We can get some of that by looking at the exponential of a Jordan Block. So the exponential of T times a Jordan Block looks like this. You get the familiar, E to the T lambda. So that you'd expect. That's the eigenvalue. ...
