This paper concerns quadratic matrix functions of the form L(λ) = Mλ² + Dλ +K where M, D, K are real and symmetric n × n matrices with M > 0. Given complete spectral information on L(λ), it is shown how new systems of the same type can be generated with updated eigenvalues and/or eigenvectors. A general purpose algorithm is formulated and illustrated with problems having no real eigenvalues, or a mixture of real and non-real eiegnvalues, or only real eigenvalues. The methods also apply for matrix polynomials of higher degree.
