On the numerical ranges of some tridiagonal matrices to Professor Leiba Rodman on the occasion of his 65th birthday

Ruey Ting Chien, Ilya M. Spitkovsky

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


For certain tridiagonal matrices of small size, we give a complete description of flat portions on the boundary of their numerical range. We also discuss the conditions for these numerical ranges to be elliptical.
