In recent years, there has been a rapid growth of interest in spectral properties of non-self-adjoint operators and operator pencils. This thesis is concerned with indefinite self-adjoint linear pencils which lead to a special class of non-self-adjoint spectral problems. These problems are not well understood, and, in general, many sign-indefinite problems which are trivial to state require some highly non-trivial analysis. We look at indefinite linear pencil problems from the perspective of a two parameter eigenvalue problem. We derive localisation results for real eigenvalues and present several examples. We also use different approaches to obtain estimates of non-real eigenvalues, supported by a large number of numerical experiments. Additionally, these experiments lead to various open questions and conjectures.
