I have been trying to otain few eigenvalues of a large system Ax=\lambda B x where A and B are large dense matrices.

As the starting I tried running the example programme sssimp.f given in the ARPACK website. I obtained the out put as given in the website http://people.sc.fsu.edu/~jburkardt/f_s ... output.txt

It says the final Ritz values are

9.912E+02 9.198E+02 9.198E+02 9.484E+02

Obviously these are not the eigenvalues I am looking for. These values are very large for eigenvalues of the problem. If I supply the same T matrix to Matlab, it gives a different set of eigenvalues.

As I understand (correct me, if I am wrong!), there is should be a way to transform, the computed Ritz value to the approximated eigenvalues. Can someone help?
