%        POWER METHOD FOR FINDING AN EIGEN-PAIR
%
% Assume that A is an n by n real matrix and that it
%
% has a full set of eigenvectors  V , V  ,..., V .
%                                  1   2        n
%
% The power method of iteration is used to find the
%
% dominant eigenvalue and its corresponding eigenvector.
%
% Remark. power.m is used for Algorithm 11.1

% Example 11.5, page 550.  Finding an eigenvalue of the matrix A.
%
% Iteration of the power method will continue until each coordinate
% of the eigenvector has converged with an error less than epsilon
% or the maximum number of iterations is reached.
%
% Enter the matrix in   A
% Enter the starting vector in  X
% Enter the tolerance in   epsilon
% Enter the maximum number of iterations in  max1

A = [ 0    11    -5;
-2    17    -7;
-4    26   -10];

[n,n] = size(A);
X = ones(n,1);
epsilon = 1e-14;
max1 = 100;

[lambda,V] = power(A,X,epsilon,max1,1)
