## A projected preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithm for computing many extreme eigenpairs of a Hermitian matrix [A projected preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithm for computing a large eigenspace of a Hermitian matrix]

Here, we present an iterative algorithm for computing an invariant subspace associated with the algebraically smallest eigenvalues of a large sparse or structured Hermitian matrix A. We are interested in the case in which the dimension of the invariant subspace is large (e.g., over several hundreds or thousands) even though it may still be small relative to the dimension of A. These problems arise from, for example, density functional theory (DFT) based electronic structure calculations for complex materials. The key feature of our algorithm is that it performs fewer Rayleigh–Ritz calculations compared to existing algorithms such as the locally optimalmore »
