You might want to check out SLEPc, an interface on top op PETSc specifically for Eigenvalue problems. Stefan added an interface to it from libMesh some time ago, and he might have some comments on this thread too. Ben _____ From: libmeshusersadmin@...

My questions are: 1) Is it possible to solve a general eigenvalue problem like Hx = Sx, where H and S are known matrixes. Are you sure you don't mean Hx = gSx, where H and S are known but g is unknown? That's the generalized eigenvalue problem built into SLEPc, which is currently the only eigenvalue solve libMesh interfaces with. Our SLEPc support currently only handles the simple Hx = gx problem, and a new interface would have to be written to get generalized eigenvalues. 2) Is it possible to have complex (selfconjugated) matrixes? If both PETSc and libMesh have been compiled with complex number support on, then the default PetscScalar and libMesh Number types will both be std::complex<double>, and PETSc should handle the linear algebra appropriately. All my code is realvalued, though; I'm not sure who's keeping the libMesh complex number support up to date.
