The act of obtaining the eigenvalues of a matrix. Possible reason used: the person wanted a word that described the process of obtaining eigenvalues, since he had to refer to such a process often

Etymology : lambda, the typical symbol for eigenvalues, plus –ify ‘V’ plus filler –c- plus -ate ‘V’ plus –ion ‘N’
