This paper explores the early implementation of high- performance routines for the solution of multiple large Hermitian eigenvector and eigenvalue systems on a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). We report a perfor- mance increase of up to two orders of magnitude over the original EISPACK routines with a NVIDIA Tesla C2050 GPU, potentially allowing an order of magnitude in- crease in the complexity or resolution of a neutron scat- tering modeling application.
