Ali - if you assume that all elements in your matrix are positive, then you could use the sqrt function as
A = [100 0 ; 0 100];
R1 = sqrt(A);
R2 = -sqrt(A);

You can use this
A = [100 0 ; 0 100];
syms B
solve('B*B-A')
this gives you two answers and if arrays of A are negative, there will be no problem.
