Eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices and linear operators are fundamental in mathematics. This short booklet is intended to be a self-contained treatment of how to determine the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a square matrix with real entries. It also includes a treatment on diagonalization: how to determine if a square matrix is similar to a diagonal matrix and how to find a diagonalizing matrix. It includes all the necessary background material and algorithms for computing the characteristic polynomial, eigenvalues and eigenspaces of a square matrix: how to solve linear systems using matrices, how to find a basis for the null space of a matrix, how to invert a matrix and how to compute a determinant. In the interest of making it entirely self-contained each section begins with a review of the relevant definitions.
