comment similarity transform mapping diagonal matrix of complex conjugates, to real matrix
Oh. Huh, that seems too easy. Is there a way to express it directly in terms of $a$ and $b$? I figure it would help to express them in polar form as $a=r \cos \theta$ and $b = r \sin \theta$.

comment Is there a faster algorithm than $O(n^2)$ for calculating “cofactors” $C_k = \prod\limits_{j\neq k}(c_k - c_j)$?
could you elaborate?

yeah, vectorization is another option. (I'm using numpy in my case.) But the polynomial coefficients are huge and are ill-conditioned; I have to work with the roots directly in order to keep numerical errors low.

comment roots of Padé approximating polynomials to the exponential function
and Gonnet/Guettel/Trefethen's paper which also seems very relevant but I can't figure out how to apply it: guettel.com/download/gonnet_guettel_trefethen.pdf which I

comment roots of Padé approximating polynomials to the exponential function
Then we have Saff and Varga's paper On the Zeros and Poles of Padé Approximants to $e^z$ which looks tantalizingly relevant, but they don't compute the roots numerically, they just have proofs of general behavioral of where they are and aren't.
