## Abstract

We study the approximation of an eigenpair (an eigenvalue and a corresponding eigenvector) of a a linear operator T from X to X, X be a Banach space.

The eigenpair is regarded as a solution of a nonlinear system obtained by considering the usual definition plus a norming function and then applying the Chebyshev or the Newton method.

We take into account that the augmented mapping has the third Frechet derivative the null operator, and we give a semilocal convergence result, which ensures the r-order three (cubic r-order) of the iterates.

We consider next the finite dimensional case, and analyse the computation of an eigenpair of a matrix. We also compare in this case the efficiency of the Newton and Chebyshev method, and find out that the later is more efficient.
