```Hi,

I am using Eigenvalues[S] to find the eigenvalues of a matrix. When S
is a non singular matrix(size 500X500), the result comes very fast and
I get numerical values of the eigenvalues. When S is singular, or very
close to singular, the same command takes a very long time and I get
the solution in the following form:

How can I get the solution(eigenvalues) as numerical values?

Thank you,
