3 Householders method

In this section, we will use Householders transformation to nd a symmetric tridiagonal matrix

T that is similar to a given symmetric matrix A.

In next section, we will discuss how to nd all eigenvalues of a symmetric tridiagonal matrix.

Denition 9.16: Let w R

n

with w

t

w = 1. Then the n n matrix

P = I 2ww

t

is called a Householder transformation (or Householder matrix).

Theorem 9.17: If P = I 2ww

t

is a householders matrix, then P is symmetric and orthogonal.

So P

1

= P

t

= P.

Proof: The symmetry is from

P

t

= (I 2ww

t

)

t

= I

t

(2ww

t

)

t

= I 2(w

t

)

t

(w)

t

= I 2ww

t

= P.

The orthogonality is from

PP

t

= (I 2ww

t

)(I 2ww

t

) = I 4ww

t

+ 4ww

t

ww

t

= I 4ww

t

+ 4w(w

t

w)w

t

= I 4ww

t

+ 4ww

t

= I.

Some basics about the Householder matrix:

(a) Pw = w. For any x orthogonal to w (i.e., w

t

x = 0), then Px = x. These imply that P has

eigenvalues 1 (multiplicity n 1) and 1.

(b) For any two distinct vectors x and y in R

n

with same length, the Householder matrix

P = I 2ww

t

, w = (x y)/x y

2

satises

Px = y.

Proof of part (b): Lets gure out how to prove it. If Px = y, then

x 2

x = y.

The last equation is true since x

x = y

t

y. For the nal proof, you write above

statements backwards.

By (b) above, for any x R

n

, let y = (x

2

, 0, . . . , 0)

t

R

n

, then x

2

= y

2

. There is a

Householder matrix P such that Px = y. This is the key step of Householder method. You may

pick + or in y.

Ex. If x = (3, 0, 4)

t

, choose y = (x

2

, 0, 0)

t

= (5, 0, 0)

t

. Let w = (x y)/x y

2

and

P = I 2ww

t

. Then Px = y. (You can verify it.)

Ex. If x = (1, 1, 3, 0, 4)

t

, nd a Householder matrix to change x to the form y = (1, 1, , 0, 0).

Sol. To make x

2

= y

2

, y = (1, 1, 5, 0, 0). Choose w = (x y)/x y

2

and P = I 2ww

t

as before. You can verify that Px = y.

Just to remind you, for a Householder matrix P, if Px = y, then x

t

P = y

t

since P is symmetric.

We use the following example to explain the Householder method for changing a symmetric

matrix to a similar triangular matrix.

Ex. Use Householder matrices to transform

A =

4 1 2 2

1 2 0 1

2 0 3 2

2 1 2 1

Sol. Let x = (4, 1, 2, 2)

t

. We want to change x to y = (4, , 0, 0)

4

. So, let y = (4, 3, 0, 0)

t

and

w = (x y)/x y

2

= (0, 2, 2, 2)

t

/

12 = (0, 1, 1, 1)/

3. Let

P

1

= I 2ww

t

=

1 0 0 0

0 1/3 2/3 2/3

0 2/3 1/3 2/3

0 2/3 2/3 1/3

.

Then

P

1

4

1

2

2

4

3

0

0

and

4, 1, 2, 2

P

1

=

4, 3, 0, 0

Then,

P

1

AP

1

=

4 3 0 0

3 10/3 4/3 1

0 4/3 1 4/3

0 1 4/3 5/3

.

Now, for x = (3, 10/3, 4/3, 1), choose y = (3, 10/3, 5/3, 0) and w = (x y)

t

/x y

2

. Then

P

2

=

1 0 0 0

0 1 0 0

0 0 4/5 3/5

0 0 3/5 4/5

.

and

P

2

P

1

AP

1

P

2

=

4 3 0 0

3 10/3 5/3 0

0 5/3 33/25 68/75

0 0 68/75 149/75

= T.

2

This matrix T is tridiagonal. Note that

T = P

2

P

1

AP

1

P

2

= P

t

2

P

t

1

AP

1

P

2

= (P

1

P

2

)

t

AP

P

2

.

Hence, T and A are similar and have same eigenvalues.

You can easily generalize this method to deal with any symmetric matrices.

Remark: This method can NOT be applied to transforming a symmetric matrix to a similar

diagonal matrix D. (which step doesnt work in the method?) (If can, the diagonal elements of D

will be the eigenvalues of A!)

Denition: A matrix H = (h

ij

) is called an upper Hessenberg if h

ij

= 0 for all i j + 2.

Remark: If we apply the method above to any matrix, the result will be an upper Hessenberg

matrix. You will have a question in your homework.

Remark: Householder method can also be used for solving systems of linear equations. The

method is much more stable than Gaussian elimination method. But this method takes more time

to get the solution than Gaussian method does.
