problem when eig doesn't converge
Posted:

The problem: I have 100 data sets. One at a time, the data sets are used to estimate values in a square matrix. I then get the eigenvalues of the matrix. The problem is that sometimes eig will not converge. I will get the eigenvalues from the first 33 matrices but then eig doesn't converge with data set #34 and the program stops.
What can I do to keep matlab running and move on to number 35, 36, 37...? The data sets are random so unfortunately I can't just pick the ones to skip.
Thanks,
