In this paper, we present an efficient ΓQR algorithm for solving the linear response eigenvalue problem Hx=λx, where H is Π−-symmetric with respect to Γ0=diag(In,−In). Based on newly introduced Γ-orthogonal transformations, the ΓQR algorithm preserves the Π−-symmetric structure of H throughout the whole process, and thus guarantees the computed eigenvalues to appear pairwise (λ,−λ) as they should. With the help of a newly established implicit Γ-orthogonality theorem, we incorporate the implicit multi-shift technique to accelerate the convergence of the ΓQR algorithm. Numerical experiments are given to show the effectiveness of the algorithm.
