A cascadic multigrid method is proposed for eigenvalue problems based on the multilevel correction scheme. With this new scheme, an eigenvalue problem on the finest space can be solved by smoothing steps on a series of multilevel finite element spaces and eigenvalue problem solving on the coarsest finite element space. Choosing the appropriate sequence of finite element spaces and the number of smoothing steps, the optimal convergence rate with the optimal computational work can be arrived.
