In a previous paper the notion of a block diagonally dominant transfer function matrix is used to provide criteria for the design of decentralized feedback control. In this paper we develop computer implementable algorithms for determining the block diagonal dominance condition. The algorithms are developed with consideration for numerical stability. Implementation of the algorithms in an interactive computing environment is suggested.
