Efficient single band eigenvalue-minimization
A very efficient scheme for the calculation of the lowest eigenvalues, might be obtained
by increasing the basis set mentioned in the previous section in each iteration step,
At the step N solve the eigenvalue problem
with the basis set
The lowest eigenvector of the eigenvalue problem is used
to calculate a new (possibly preconditioned) search vector .
