In this paper we discuss spectral properties of operators associated with the least-squares finite-element approximation of elliptic partial differential equations. The convergence of the discrete eigenvalues and eigenfunctions towards the corresponding continuous eigenmodes is studied and analyzed with the help of appropriate L2 error estimates. A priori and a posteriori estimates are proved.
