chapter  6
Solution of Large-Scale Eigen-Value Probiems
Pages 39

In Chapter 5, different methods for the solution of eigen-value problems were described. In this chapter, two popular methods used for the solution of large-scale problems will be described in detail. The two are

• the simultaneous iteration method • the sub-space iteration method

It has to be remembered, that in most practical cases, only a very small percentage of the full eigen-pairs are needed. These methods are therefore geared to address this specific requirement.
