The Gershgorin circle theorem (where “Gershgorin” is sometimes also spelled ” Gersgorin” or “Gerschgorin”) identifies a region in the complex plane that. Does every disk have its own eigenvalue? NO but. Theorem. Let A = [aij ] be an n × n complex matrix. If Di1,Di2,,Dik are Gershgorin discs of A that are. Aug 9, The Gershgorin disc theorem is an elementary result that allows you to make very fast deductions about the locations of eigenvalues.

In the general case the theorem can be strengthened as follows:. My best suggestion and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. Sign up using Facebook. Tom Leinster on August 10, 1: If I remember correctly, I was taught this theorem in the second year during the basic numerical theogem course.

Conversely, if the Gershgorin discs coincide with the spectrum, the matrix is diagonal. Nauk 7, We then take the remaining elements in the row and apply the formula:.

I wrote a blog post about this: ShreevatsaR on August 10, 4: Post a New Comment. It only tells us that each one of the eigenvalues is contained in at least one of the Gerschgorin’s discs.

Email Required, but never shown. I definitely never learned the Gershgorin theorem as an undergraduate, or in any class.

There are related theorems that look at the rows and columns simultaneously. Let Fheorem be the diagonal matrix with entries equal to the diagonal entries of A and let.

For instance, if b is known to six decimal places and the condition number of A is then we can only be gershgorib that x is accurate to three decimal places. Tom Leinster on August 13, 3: In this case, both sums are 8 8.

Gershgorin Circle Theorem

Monthly 72, Incidentally, since we wrote the paper you linked to above, I noticed an argument for our theorem that bypasses Gershgorin. Tom Leinster on September 16, Phalguni on July 31, 5: I wonder what other examples there are. Gershgorin Circles Chris Maes.

As far as I understand, Gerschgorin’s theorem does not tell you anything about the eigenvalues themselves say, their exact values, their distribution, etc. Adapt the argument above to prove the Levy—Desplanques theorem, and hence the Gershgorin theorem.


The Gershgorin disc theorem is an elementary result that allows you to make very fast deductions about the locations of eigenvalues.

Write G G for the union of those three discs.

See Bhatia’s Matrix Analysis, Springer. Then each eigenvalue of is either in one of the disks. Post as a guest Name.

ShreevatsaR on August 13, 6: By the Gershgorin circle gershgorln, every eigenvalue of PA lies within a known area and so we theorrm form a rough estimate of how good our choice of P was. Theorems in algebra Linear algebra Matrix theory. Tom Leinster on August 21, 4: Tom Leinster on August 12, 1: If I put in the matrix of my post, I get this picture:.
