#' Function to compute extreme values of Moran's I 
#' 
#' This function computes the upper and lower bounds of Moran's I for a given spatial weighting matrix (stored in a \code{listw} object).
#' These values are obtained by the eigendecomposition of the spatial weighting matrix.
#'  
#' 
#' 
#' @param listw an object of class \code{listw}
#' @return A vector containing the maximum and minimum of Moran's I for a given spatial weighting matrix value returned
