I am currently reading the book Basic Algebra [modern] Anthony W. Knapp about Jordan canonical form

Is there any detailed oriented book about Jordan Normal Form which explain :

  • An Algorithm to put a matrix in Jordan normal form.
  • How to Find Bases for Jordan Canonical Forms ( i think there is lots but one which universal based on proof )
  • an Examples of how to find a matrix P that puts A in JCF

any help would be appreciated !

    $\begingroup$ Hoffman and Kunze's Linear Algebra explains Jordan Normal Form quite extensively, with examples and all. It doesn't talk about algorithms for finding it though. $\endgroup$ – Misguided Feb 6 '15 at 12:25

Try Weintraub Jordan Canonical Form Theory and Practice. It seems quite detailed.
