Collatz method; twosided eigenvalue estimates; elliptic operators
The Collatz method of twosided eigenvalue estimates was extended by K. Rektorys in his monography Variational Methods to the case of differential equations of the form $Au - \lambda Bu=0$ with elliptic operators. This method requires to solve, successively, certain boundary value problems. In the case of partial differential equations, these problems are to be solved approximately, as a rule, and this is the source of further errors. In the work, it is shown how to estimate these additional errors, or how to avoid them by a proper modification of the method. At the same time, some results of their own interest are derived.
