For the eigenvalue problem of the Steklov differential operator, by following Liu's approach, an algorithm utilizing the conforming finite element method (FEM) is proposed to provide guaranteed lower bounds for the eigenvalues. The proposed method requires the a priori error estimation for FEM solution to nonhomogeneous Neumann problems, which is solved by constructing the hypercircle for the corresponding FEM spaces and boundary conditions. As an application of proposed eigenvalue bounds for the Steklov operator, the optimal and explicit bound for the constant in the trace theorem is evaluated for several domains.
