Abstract:

A study of different numerical methods for computing the eigenvalues of Hermitian matrices has been carried out. The Givens-Householder procedure was found to be the fastest, most accurate method. Relationships among eigenvalue accuracy, word size, form of arithmetic, hardware implementation, and speed are discussed. Author
