In mathematics, the folded spectrum method (FSM) is an iterative method for solving large eigenvalue problems. Here you always find a vector with an eigenvalue close to a search-value . This means you can get a vector in the middle of the spectrum without solving the matrix.

In contrast to the Conjugate gradient method, here the gradient calculates by twice multipling matrix
