In order to figure out what range the eigenvalues of a certain matrix would be in we can use Gershgorin’s. Theorem. 1 Strictly Diagonally Dominant Matrices. ordering rows and columns PMP−1, where P is a permutation matrix.) Gershgorin Circle Theorem. Also called the Gershgorin Disk Theorem. Theorem statement. Gerschgorin theorem, Geršgorin theorem. Given a complex -matrix,, with, then finding the eigenvalues of is equivalent to finding the zeros of.

Gerschgorin Circle Theorem — from Wolfram MathWorld
Tom Leinster on August 9, 7: Using the exact inverse of A would be nice but finding the inverse theorfm a matrix is something we want to avoid because of the computational expense.
We then take the remaining elements in the row and apply the formula:. I think setting some problems about theotem is a nice idea, partly because it makes a valuable point — that you can extract some nontrivial information about invariant quantities eigenvalues associated to a matrix quite directly from the highly non-invariant matrix entries. If I put in the matrix of my post, I get this picture:.
But I liked her ultimate verdict. In Praise of the Gershgorin Disc Theorem I was not taught this theorem as an undergraduate, but came across it in an economics paper soon later. The Gershgorin circle theorem where “Gershgorin” is sometimes also spelled “Gersgorin” or “Gerschgorin” identifies a region in the complex plane that contains all the eigenvalues of a complex square matrix.
Tom Leinster on August 16, This page was last edited on 26 Novemberat gersdhgorin He gives an example later on: Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. But I slightly regret it. In Praise of the Gershgorin Disc Theorem. Aaron Denney on September 16, Example For a diagonal matrixthe Gershgorin discs coincide with the spectrum.
I spent a weekend mostly unplugged from the internet, and plugged back in to find that people had written all sorts of wonderful things in reply to my posts. This may be contrasted to an ellipse, for which the sum of the distances is constant, rather than the product.
Maybe some application in numerical analysis were given, but to be sure I would have to dig up my old notebook. The theorem is so useful, and the proof is a pushover.

terschgorin Let me repeat gersschgorin you wrote for anyone too lazy to click. In mathematicsthe Gershgorin circle theorem may be used to bound the spectrum of a square matrix.
Mark Meckes on August 22, 3: When you switch from rows to columns, the first disc grows, the second shrinks, and the third stays the same. Collection of teaching and learning tools built by Wolfram education experts: For instance, it lets you look at the matrix. Then each eigenvalue of is either in one of the disks. Why the emphasis on dominance in each row? In this case, both sums are 8 8.
I observed that Levy—Desplanques is an easy consequence of Gerschgorn since if A A satisfies the hypotheses of the L-D theorem then none of the discs contains 0 0. Mark Meckes on August 19, 2: Tables of Integrals, Series, and Products, 6th ed.
A proof using complex analysis Argument Principle is clear and mathematically sound.
Wes Harker on August 11, One way to interpret this theorem is that if the off-diagonal entries of a square matrix over the complex numbers have small normsthe eigenvalues of the matrix cannot be “far from” the diagonal entries of the matrix.
Hints help you try the next step on your gerschhorin.
If one of the discs is disjoint from the others then it contains exactly one eigenvalue.
