We survey the quadratic eigenvalue problem, treating its many applications, its mathematical properties, and a variety of numerical solution techniques. Emphasis is given to exploiting both the structure of the matrices in the problem (dense, sparse, real, complex, Hermitian, skew-Hermitian) and the spectral properties of the problem. We classify numerical methods and catalogue available software.
