In this paper, a fully parallel method for finding all eigenvalues of a real matrix pencil is given, where and are real symmetric tridiagonal and is positive definite. The method is based on the homotopy continuation coupled with the strategy Divide-Conquer and Laguerre iterations. The numerical results obtained from implementation of this method on both single and multiprocessor computers are presented. It appears that our method is strongly competitive with other methods. The natural parallelism of our algorithm makes it an excellent candidate for a variety of advanced architectures.
