# 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).

### Generalized Eigenvalue Problem from linear stability analysis

I also posted this in the physics forum, but maybe here it fits better. I am trying to solve a generalized eigenvalue problem raised by linear stability analysis $$AV=\lambda BV.$$ $A$ and $B$ are ...

### Most efficient way to compute eigenvectors / values of this matrix?

I have a symmetric $3 \times 3$ matrix $A$ and I need to compute the eigenvectors and eigenvalues of this. I know that I can use something like Lapack, but I also know that this can be computed ...

### Determine numerical infinity for Schrodinger equation $−\psi''(x) + x^ 2 \psi(x) = E\psi(x)$

Consider the following Schrodinger equation for the harmonic oscillator with real $x$: $$−ψ''(x) + x^ 2 ψ(x) = Eψ(x).$$ I solve the last equation using shooting method and implicit Runge-Kutta ...

### Stabilizing a 3x3 real symmetric matrix eigenvalue calculation

I have many 3x3 real symmetric matrices for which I need to determine the eigenvalues. Wikipedia gives a nice non-iterative algorithm for this case, which I have translated into C++: ...

### ARPACK gives different answers from Matlab and NAG

I'm playing with ARPACK. I looked into the examples they provide, zndrv4.f illustrating the usage of the routine znaupd, in the directory of ARPACK/EXAMPLES/COMPLEX/. I also came cross NAG Fortran ...
