Question concerning Aldrovandi/Freitas-article
#2

In my understanding this remark is a bit misleading; the normality-criterion applies only, if an orthonormal similarity transform is requested, which is usually also called a rotation. But here we are able to do a similarity transform using triangular matrices, which even allows exact powerseries-terms for arbitrary size of matrices.

Dont understand this either. I think they are wrong.
