The selfadjoint eigenvalue problem \[ find\quad \mu \in {\mathbb{R}}\quad and\quad 0\neq u\in V\quad such\quad that\quad b(u,v)=\mu \cdot (u,v)\quad \forall v\in V \] is solved in a Hilbert space V. This problem is approximated by a family of eigenvalue problems on finite-dimensional spaces. Sufficient conditions for convergent approximations are given. The eigenvalues are found using Rayleigh quotients. The convergence of the method is proved and error estimates as well as some examples are given.
