How do I calculate the eigenvalues of the positive partial transpose of this two-qubit state?

How can I calculate the eigenvalues of $\rho^{T_{B}}$ (PPT) of the following state $$ \rho =\frac{1}{2}|0\rangle\langle0|\otimes|+\rangle\langle+|+\frac{1}{2}|+\rangle\langle+|\otimes|1\rangle\langle1|...

Finding entanglement in matrix that is a sum of 4 Bell states

A general Bell state: $|\beta(a,b)\rangle = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}[|0,0 \oplus b\rangle + (-1)^{a}|1,1 \oplus b \rangle]$ $|\beta(0,0)\rangle = \frac{1}{2}[|00\rangle \langle 00| + |00\rangle \langle 11| +...
