Computes the characteristic polynomial of a matrix.
A matrix.
This input accepts a 2D array of double-precision, floating point numbers or 2D array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.
Error conditions that occur before this node runs.
The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.
Standard Error Behavior
Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.
Default: No error
Coefficients of the characteristic polynomial of the input matrix in ascending order.
Error information.

The characteristic polynomial of matrix A is defined as p(λ) = det(λI - A), where det denotes the matrix determinant.
If A is a square matrix of order n, the order of its characteristic polynomial is n. Moreover, the n roots of the characteristic polynomial are the eigenvalues of A.
