Applied Mathematical Sciences, Vol. 1, 2007, no. 49, 2443 - 2449 Some Bounds for the Singular Values of Matrices Ramazan Turkmen and Haci Civciv Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Art and Science Selcuk University, 42031 Konya, Turkey rturkmen@selcuk.edu.tr, hacicivciv@selcuk.edu.tr Abstract We know that to estimate matrix singular values ( especially the largest and the smallest ones ) is an attractive topic in matrix theory and numerical analysis. In this note, we ﬁrst provide a simple estimate for the smallest singular value )of positive deﬁnite matrix .

Secondly, we obtain some simple estimates for the smallest singular value ) and the largest singular value )ofany complex matrix , which is not necessarily positive deﬁnite. Finally, we get a simple estimate for the largest singular value )ofan nonsin- gular complex matrix . These estimates are presented as a function of the determinant and the Euclidean norm of and Mathematics Subject Classsiﬁcation: 15A18, 15A60, 15A15 Keywords: Singular values, matrix norm, determinant 1 Introduction Let be -by- matrix with complex (real) elements. We denote the smallest singular value of by

We then obtain some simple estimates for the smallest singular value ) and the largest singular value )ofany complex matrix , which is not necessarily

positive deﬁnite. Finally, we get a simple estimate for the largest singular value )ofan nonsingular complex matrix 2 Preliminaries In this section, we review the basic results on matrices needed in this paper. For more comprehensive treatments on matrices we refer to . Let be any matrix. The Eucledean norm of the matrix are deﬁned as i,j =1 ij (1) Also, the spectral norm of the matrix is max where is eigenvalue of and is conjugate transpose of the matrix If , , ..., are the eigenvalues of the matrix , then det ... (2) The sequare roots of the eigenvalues of are the singular

values of A. Since is Hermitian and positive semideﬁnite, the singular values of are real and nonnegative. This let us write them in sorted order ... If , , ..., are the singular values of the matrix , then =1 (3) Throughout this note, we denote the smallest singular value of by ), and its largest singular value by

Bounds for singular values of matrices 2445 The arithmetic-geometric-mean inequality, or brieﬂy the AGM inequality is the most important inequality in the classical analysis. It simply states that if ,x , ..., x are nonnegative real numbers and , ,

..., 0 with =1 = 1, then =1 =1 and equality holds if and only if ... =1 The important unweighted case occurs if we put ... , ...x , ...

From the arithmetic-geometric-mean inequality, we can write =1 =1 /n (5) and =1 =1 /n (6) Threfore, the inequalities (5) and (6) give =1 =1 (7) Thus, if we consider the identitiy =1 ) and the Ineq. (7), then we get =1

proof. Theorem 2 Let be any -by- complex matrix. Then, the smallest singular value and the largest singular value of satisfy 1) and +2 2 det ( )+2 Proof.

Then, for each Ix Ax 1+ Therefore, =1+ ), =1 , ..., n , are the eigenvalues of the matrix . Hence, we can write det ( )= =1 1+ (13) Combining (12) and (13), we obtain +2 2 det ( )+2 n (14) We solve the inequality (14) for ) to obtain +2 2 det ( )+2
