Minimal Gerschgorin sets. II

Bernard Werner Levinger and Richard Steven Varga

Vol. 17 (1966), No. 2, 199–210
Abstract

The Gerschgorin Circle Theorem, which yields n disks whose union contains all the eigenvalues of a given n×n matrix A = (ai,j), applies equally well to any matrix B = (bi,j) of the set ΩA of n×n matrices with bi,i = ai,i and |bi,j| = |ai,j|, 1 i, j n. This union of n disks thus bounds the entire spectrum SA) of the matrices in ΩA. The main result of this paper is a precise characterization of SA), which can be determined by extensions of the Gerschgorin Circle Theorem based only on the use of positive diagonal similarity transformations, permutation matrices, and their intersections.
