Definition:

Let A be an arbitrary square matrix of order n, the spectrum of A is the set of all the eigenvalues, and it is denoted as (A). The spectral radius is the maximum size of these eigenvalues and it is denoted by:

Theorem 1:

Let A be an arbitrary square matrix of order n. then for every matrix norm we have:

.

Proof:

Let be the largest eigenvalue of A (in absolute terms) and let v be the eigenvector associated with this eigenvalue with .

Then:

Theorem 2:

Let A be an arbitrary square matrix of order n. Then Am converges to the zero matrix as m→∞ if and only if ...
