#### Residual Vectors.

Let denote a computed eigenvalue, and let be its corresponding computed eigenvector, i.e.,

Sometimes, its corresponding left computed eigenvector is also available:

The residual vectors corresponding to the computed eigenvalue are defined as

respectively. For the simplicity, we normalize the approximate eigenvectors so that and and normalize the approximate eigenvalue so that .
