In this paper, the discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin approximation of the Laplace eigenvalue problem is discussed. We consider in particular the primal and ultraweak formulations of the problem and prove the convergence together with a priori error estimates. Moreover, we propose two possible error estimators and perform the corresponding a posteriori error analysis. The theoretical results are confirmed numerically, and it is shown that the error estimators can be used to design an optimally convergent adaptive scheme.
