When you say "top 10" do you mean the eigenvalues with the largest or
smallest values?
I would also be interested in knowing if there is any mathematical way
of doing this. Sometimes for example in molecular simulations you only
want to calculate the ground state energy, for example, and you don't
care about the rest...
