i cant find anywhere,what is and how to find matrix signature. wikipedia tells only, that signature matrix is matrix with +/-1 on diagonal. For example

1 1 1

1 1 1

According to the website jbunniii references, the "signature of a matrix" is an order triple of integers: (the number of positives entries on the main diagonal, the number of negative entries on the main diagonal, the number of 0 entries on the main diagonal).
