A new Variant of an Iterative Method for Solving the Complete Eigenvalue of Matrices


Arif ZoliŠ


In a complete problem of eigenvalues of matrices of the $n$-th order the essential role is played by the development of the characteristic determinant $$ D(\lambda)=\det(A-\lambda E)$$ or some other determinant which is essentially identical to this one. There is a series of different methods by which we come to the explicit form of this polynomial. In this paper iterative formulas are derived for finding of all eigenvalues of a real matrix without developing the characteristic polynomial. The method is based on the Newton's method for solving systems of nonlinear equations.
