Rayleigh Quotient Iteration.

Similar to inverse iteration, the Rayleigh quotient iteration (RQI) method of §4.3 can also be generalized to solve the problem (5.1).

\begin{algorithm}{RQI for GHEP}
(nr)ss\=ijkl\=bbb\=ccc\=ddd\= ...
...bda=\rho_{k}$\ for most recent $k$\ and $x=v$ \end{tabbing}}

The only difference between Algorithms 5.2 and 5.3 is in step (8), where the shift is updated. This makes it necessary to perform a sparse factorization in step (3) in each iteration. The reward for this is a cubic rate of convergence.
