Calculates the deterministic multiplicative growth rate (lambda), the stable age distribution (u) and the reproductive values (v) from a given projection matrix.

`pm` |
a projection matrix. For instance, the output from the function |

Given a projection matrix (l), this function calculates the real dominant eigenvalue (lambda), and the left (u) and right (v) eigenvectors, defined by l*u = lambda*u and v*l = lambda*v.

`eigenl`

returns a list containing the following components:

`lambda` |
the deterministic multiplicative growth rate of the population from which the projection matrix was estimated |

`u` |
the stable age distribution of the population from which the projection matrix was estimated |

`u` |
the reproductive values of the population from which the projection matrix was estimated |
