# Questions tagged [eigenvalues]

Eigenvalues are a special set of scalars associated with a linear system of equations (i.e., a matrix equation) that are sometimes also known as characteristic roots, characteristic values (Hoffman and Kunze 1971), proper values, or latent roots (Marcus and Minc 1988, p. 144).

### Fast Eigenvalue and SVD Solver for Structured Matrices

I am looking for a fast Eigenvalue and SVD solver for small dense structured matrices (Hankel and Toeplitz). I have searched for efficient implementations in libraries like MKL but I am not able to ...

### Eigenvalue with largest imaginary part

Iterative eigensolvers such as ARPACK, give the option to find a subset of the eigenvalues which have the largest imaginary part. My question is how do these algorithms work. As I understand it, ...

### Can we sparse solve a few eigenvalues specified by index range?

I need to solve a few eigenvalues of a large sparse matrix specified by their index range. These indices are according to the whole eigenspectrum sorted in algebraic (not absolute value) ascending ...

### Ways to speed up Lanczos algorithm when we have a very dense cluster of many eigenvalues?

Lanczos algorithm can be used to find the largest/smallest eigenvalues of matrices. I am trying to find a good library in C/C++/Rust for finding the smallest singular value (or eigenvalue). I have ...

### Optimal Krylov subspace dimension and iteration limits for eigs

When using the eigs function in MATLAB, which is based off of ARPACK, one can manually modify the maximal dimension of the constructed Krylov subspaces, the maximum iteration counts, and the error ...

### Rayleigh-Ritz under LOBPCG : Nested iteration?

I am trying to understand the basic LOBPCG algorithm, as used in popular python libraries, primarily from the suggested resource on wiki. LOBPCG involves a subroutine to compute the coefficients of ...

### Well-conditioned pseudospectral for computing eigenvalues to (partial) differential equations

I am working on writing a Chebyshev pseudospectral method (see for example "Chebsyhev and Fourier spectral methods" by John Boyd) to solve for the eigenvalues of differential equations of ...

### Neural networks trained with subspace iteration algorithms for solving SCF eigenvalue problems

I am toying with the idea of using current libraries available with SCF (Self-Consistent Field) subspace iteration codes to train an ANN (Artificial Neural Network) to solve for SCF eigenvalue ...
