i am now reading some materials on lanczos algorithm, one of the ten most important numerical algorithms in the 20th century(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

my puzzle is, why it is useful for finding out the ground state energy?

i can not see anything special about the ground state energy in the algorithm
