Hi Sebastian,

>From the error message you get when you enter an non-existing method
(e.g., Method->"EducatedGuess") it appears that the only other method
apart from Arnoldi is Automatic.

WRT other options:

In[3]:= Options[Eigenvalues]

Out[3]= {Cubics -> False, Method -> Automatic, Quartics -> False}

gives you the default options.

Cheers -- Sjoerd
