Wave packet pseudomodes of twisted Toeplitz matrices

Trefethen, Lloyd N. and Chapman, S. J. (2002) Wave packet pseudomodes of twisted Toeplitz matrices. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



The pseudospectra of nonsymmetric Toeplitz or circulant matrices with varying coefficients are considered. Such matrices are characterized by a symbol that depends on both position (x) and wave number (k). It is shown that when a certain winding number or twist condition is satisfied, analogous to Hörmander's commutator condition for partial differential equations, \varepsilon-pseudoeigenvectors of such matrices for exponentially small values of \varepsilon exist in the form of localized wave packets. The symbol need not be smooth, just differentiable at a point (or less).
