If A = A∗ , and < Ax, x >= α for some x ∈ Cn with ||x|| = 1, then λmin ≤ α ≤ λmax . 4.1.3 Question. Rayleigh-Ritz on gives us information about λmin and λmax , but can we use < Ax, x > to obtain any information about λ2 . . . λn−1 ? It turns out that qA does indeed encode information about λ2 . . . λn−1 which we demonstrate in the next section Other eigenvalues of A 4.1.4 Theorem. Let A ∈ Mn satisfy A = A∗ . Let S be the unit sphere in Cn . Take y ∈ S . d Then y is an eigenvector of A iﬀ ∀ diﬀerentiable f : R ￿→ S with f (0) = y , dt |t=0 qA (f (t)) = 0. Befor...
