comparing sets of roots of charpoly
I am missing something about how to compare list of roots. During a small algorithm I need to know wether a matrix has or not complex eigenvalues. I did the following
A=matrix(QQ,[[1,2,1],[6,-1,0],[-1,-2,-1]]) a=(B.charpoly()).roots(ring= QQ, multiplicities=False) b=(B.charpoly()).roots(ring= QQbar, multiplicities=False)
then a is the list [-4,0,3] and b is the list [3,0,-4]. I don't get the following :
return false while
Any help, either on the first pb (knowing that a QQ matrix has complex eigenvalues) or on the second would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
