how do i find the index of a nilpotent matrix??..

Steve,
Hmm. I don't know of any "formula" as such. You know that an NxN matrix will have index <= N, so just start multiplying. You'll have at most N1 multiplications.

but what if N is a huge number...is there any logic to make the process simpler?
