   <description>

This function returns a List of two matrices, containing numerical approximation to A's eigenvalues and (right hand) eigenvectors. Therefore the input matrix A has to be rectangular! It is implemented in the ApCoCoA server, so you need a running server. It was not implemented in version 0.99.4 or previous. Also please keep in mind this method is based on blas/Lapack's eigenvalue solver and uses floating point arithmetic. This is not an exact, algebraic method! The output contains first of a matrix B, where each row contains one of A's eigenvalues. The first column contains the eigenvalue's real part, the second the imaginary. The second element of the returned list is a matrix of the size of A, containing the (right hand) eigenvectors of A. To compute only the left hand's eigenvectors apply this method to Transposed(A). <example> A:=Mat([[1,2,7,18],[2,4,9,12],[23,8,9,10],[7,5,3,2]]); Numerical.EigenValuesAndVectors(A); -- CoCoAServer: computing Cpu Time = 0.0038
