## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey all,

I've run into a snag with research and it is partly related to taking the square root of a matrix. I've seen related stuff concerning matrices that can be diagonalized, however the 2x2 matrix in question is not diagonalizable. Can the square root of such a matrix be determined? If so, how?

Thanks!
