Abstract

Let A be an n X n complex matrix. Then the numerical range of A, W(A), is defined to be {x*Ax : x ∈ ℂn, x*x = 1}. In this article a series of tests is given, allowing one to determine the shape of W( A) for 3 X 3 matrices. Reconstruction of A, up to unitary similarity, from W(A) is also examined.
