Isospectral reductions decrease the dimension of the adjacency matrix while keeping all the eigenvalues. This is achieved by using rational functions in the entries of the reduced matrix. I will show how it's done through an example. I will also discuss about the eigenvectors and generalized eigenvectors before and after reductions.
