`A` |
a list of matrices |

`tlimit` |
time limit, default 100 |

Function copied from demogR package since it was removed from CRAN. See section 14.4.1 in Caswell 2001.

A list with two elements:

`sensitivities ` |
sensitivities of the stochastic growth rate |

`elasticities ` |
elasticities of the stochastic growth rate |
