Harmonic Ritz and Lehmann bounds

Christopher Beattie


This article reviews a variety of results related to optimal bounds for matrix eigenvalues –- some results presented here are well-known; others are less known; and a few are new. The focus rests especially on Ritz and harmonic Ritz values, and right- and left-definite variants of Lehmann's optimal bounds. Two new computationally advantageous reformulations of left-definite Lehmann bounds are introduced, together with a discussion indicating why they might be preferable to the cheaper right-definite bounds.
