# Nonsymmetric Eigenvalue Problems: ScaLAPACK Computational Routines

This section describes ScaLAPACK routines for solving nonsymmetric eigenvalue problems, computing the Schur factorization of general matrices, as well as performing a number of related computational tasks.
To solve a nonsymmetric eigenvalue problem with ScaLAPACK, you usually need to reduce the matrix to the upper Hessenberg form and then solve the eigenvalue problem with the Hessenberg matrix obtained.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
