Hi Matthew,

The issue#360 in arnoldi function is because of an extra multiplication of A in the deflation.

The current (incorrect) arnoldi calculates instead the first eigenvalues of A and A-A^2. That's why in issue#360 the two eigenvectors are identical and the eigenvalues
lambda0 = (0.598975,0) lambda1 = (0.240204,0)
satisfy lambda1 = lambda0 - lambda0^2.

A minor pull request has been submitted here.

However, even after this fix the arnoldi function can only deal with Hermitian operator. Because the current deflation process cannot project to the correct subspace if the previously calculated eigenvectors are not orthogonal.

Formatting Tips:
  • To format code, indent by four spaces
  • To format inline LaTeX, surround it by @@ on both sides
  • To format LaTeX on its own line, surround it by $$ above and below
  • For LaTeX, it may be necessary to backslash-escape underscore characters to obtain proper formatting. So for example writing \sum\_i to represent a sum over i.
