Abstract:

In this paper, we derive expressions for the bounds of the extremal eigenvalues of positive definite matrices. Our approach is to use a symmetric projection operator onto an n-2 dimensional subspace of the real space of n tuples. These bounds are based on traces of the matrix and its powers. They are relatively easy and inexpensive to compute.
