The Eigenvalues of Second-order Spectral Differentiation Matrices *


The eigenvalues of the pseudospectral second derivative matrix with homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions are important in many applications of spectral methods. This paper investigates some of their properties. Numerical results show that a certain fraction of the eigenvalues approximate the eigenvalues of the continuous operator very accurately, but… (More)
