# Hands-On Exercises for SLEPc

Intended for use with version 3.8 of SLEPc

These exercises introduce application development in SLEPc, the Scalable Library for Eigenvalue Problem Computations. A basic knowledge of PETSc is assumed. The first exercise (exercise 0) is just a guided tour on how to get started compiling and running programs. Exercises 1, 2, 3, and 4 are intended to cover most of the basic SLEPc functionality. The rest of the exercises illustrate more advanced features. All the example programs used in the exercises are included in the SLEPc distribution and are also available at its web site.

**Exercise 0**: Hello World

**Exercise 1**: Standard Symmetric Eigenvalue Problem

**Exercise 2**: Standard Non-Symmetric Eigenvalue Problem

**Exercise 3**: Generalized Eigenvalue Problem Stored in a File

**Exercise 4**: Singular Value Decomposition

**Exercise 5**: Problem without Explicit Matrix Storage

**Exercise 6**: Parallel Execution

**Exercise 7**: Use of Deflation Subspaces

**Exercise 8**: Quadratic Eigenvalue Problem
