The classical eigenvalue problem of the second-order elliptic operator is approximatedwith bi-quadratic nite element in this paper. We construct a new superconvergent functionrecovery operator, from which the O(h8|lnh|2) ultraconvergence of eigenvalue approxima-tion is obtained. Numerical experiments verify the theoretical results.
