    Does anybody know of any good websites that contain a clear proof of the existence of the Jordan Canonical Form of matrices? My professor really confused me today

    Incidentally, the Jordan canonical form makes it really easy to prove the Cayley-Hamilton theorem (which was assigned as a homework problem in our math methods class :p).
