Abstract : The roots of a polynomial with complex coefficients are found by applying the inverse power method to a companion matrix associated with the polynomial. If the coefficients are real, tests are performed to determine if a computed root is real or a member of a complex conjugate pair. After all the roots are found, an a posteriori error analysis is performed. (Author)
