To efficiently calculate only part of the spectrum of a matrix, one can use a projection onto a suitable subspace. In this work, we present a technique to efficiently calculate such a projection without knowledge of the spectrum. The technique requires only few matrix-matrix products and inversions, which for some classes of matrices, like the formula8-matrices, can be computed in almost linear complexity.
