    in what context?

    if it's hamiltonians classical mechanics, i am unaware of a textbook that discusses eigenvalues of hamiltonians. (i personally used thornton and marion, so the treatment of hamiltonians was basic and minimal.)

    if it's quantum mechanics, i am sure that any beginning-level quantum mechanics textbook (griffiths?) discusses this.

    as far as the actual process of diagonalization of matrices (ie, finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors), any beginning textbook in linear algebra ought to be sufficient.
