An iterative method for finding the largest eigenvalue of a nonnegative tensor was proposed by Ng, Qi, and Zhou in 2009. In this paper, we establish an explicit linear convergence rate of the Ng-Qi-Zhou method for essentially positive tensors. Numerical results are given to demonstrate linear convergence of the Ng-Qi-Zhou algorithm for essentially positive tensors.
