An application of the single-vector, Lanczos procedure to an nxn, real, symmetric matrix A yields a sequence of symmetric, tridiagonal, mxm matrices T(m), equals 1,2,... . These matrices are generated using Lanczos recursion (1) (Image Omitted) In (1) the v(i) are n times 1 vectors with v a unit vector chosen randomly. The alpha (1) and beta(i+1) generated in (1) are, respectively, the diagonal and off diagonal entries of T(m).
