We propose a structure-preserving doubling algorithm for a quadratic eigenvalue problem arising from the stability analysis of time-delay systems. We are particularly interested in the eigenvalues on the unit circle, which are difficult to estimate. The convergence and backward error of the algorithm are analyzed and three numerical examples are presented. Our experience shows that our algorithm is efficient in comparison to the few existing approaches for small to medium size problems.
- Palindromic eigenvalue problem
- Quadratic eigenvalue problem
- Time-delay system
- Unimodular eigenvalue
