Abstract : The use of Laguerre iterations for finding eigenvalues of matrices is considered. The algorithm discussed here is designed for the calculation of the eigenvalues of real square matrices of orders up to 100. The method is applicable to complex matrices also. The method consists of reducing the given matrix A to Hessenberg form H by similarity transformations and then conducting an iterative search for the eigenvalues of H using the method of Laguerre.
