In this paper, we present an efficient QR algorithm for solving the linear response eigenvalue problem H x= x, where H is -symmetric with respect to 0= diag (I n, I n). Based on newly introduced -orthogonal transformations, the QR algorithm preserves the -symmetric structure of H throughout the whole process, and thus guarantees the computed eigenvalues to appear pairwise (, ) as they should. With the help of a newly established implicit -orthogonality theorem, we incorporate the implicit multi-shift technique to accelerate the convergence of the QR algorithm. Numerical experiments are given to show the effectiveness of the algorithm.
