This volume, which became a classic on first publication, is perhaps the most important and widely read book in the field of numerical analysis. It presents a distillation of the author's pioneering discoveries concerning the computation of matrix eigenvalues. The emphasis is on the transmission of knowledge rather than elaborate proofs. The book will be valued by all practising numerical analysts, students and researchers in the field, engineers, and scientists.
