    yes ,There is a way to find characteristic polynomial of A using characteristic polynomial of block diagonal matrix. *characteristic polynomial of A is just multiplication of charpoly of block diagonal matrices. * min polynomial is LCM of min polynomial of block diagonal matrices.

    there is no shortcut method to find ch. and min. polynomial , we have to find by finding det(A-xI)=0 .
