# 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.
