Abstract: In this paper an implicit (double) shifted QR-method for computing the eigenvalues of companion and fellow matrices will be presented. Companion and fellow matrices are Hessenberg matrices, that can be decomposed into the sum of a unitary and a rank 1 matrix. The Hessenberg, the unitary as well as the rank 1 structures are preserved under a step of the QR-method. This makes these matrices suitable for the design of a fast QR-method. Several techniques already exist for performing a QR-step. The implementation of these methods is highly dependent on the representation used. Unfortunately for most of the methods compression is needed since one is not able to maintain all three, unitary, Hessenberg, rank 1 structures. In this manuscript an implicit algorithm will be designed for performing a step of the QR-method onto the companion or fellow matrix based on a new representation consisting of Givens transformations. Moreover, no compression is needed as the specific representation of the involved matrices is maintained. Finally also a double shift version of the implicit method is presented.
