To measure an observable of a quantum mechanical system leaves it in one of its eigenstates, while the result of the measurement will be one of its eigenvalues. This process is shown to be a computational resource: it becomes possible, in principle, to diagonalize finite Hermitean matrices by quantum mechanical measurements only. If the zeros of a polynomial are known to be real, then they can be found by a similar method.
