The inverse eigenvalue problem for Hermitian matrices whose graphs are cycles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In 1979, Ferguson characterized the periodic Jacobi matrices with given eigenvalues and showed how to use the Lanzcos Algorithm to construct each Such matrix. This article provides general characterizations and constructions for the complex analogue of periodic Jacobi matrices. As a consequence of the main procedure, we prove that the multiplicity of an eigenvalue of a periodic Jacobi matrix is at most 2.
