# Von Neumann type trace inequalities for Schatten-class operators

@article{Dirr2019VonNT, title={Von Neumann type trace inequalities for Schatten-class operators}, author={Gunther Dirr and Frederik vom Ende}, journal={Journal of Operator Theory}, year={2019} }

We generalize von Neumann's well-known trace inequality, as well as related eigenvalue inequalities for hermitian matrices, to Schatten-class operators between complex Hilbert spaces of infinite dimension. To this end, we exploit some recent results on the $C$-numerical range of Schatten-class operators. For the readers' convenience, we sketched the proof of these results in the Appendix.

A gradient-based systematic procedure for optimizing these transformations is described that finds the largest projection of a transformed initial operator onto the target operator and, thus, the maximum spectroscopic signal.

A single neuron with Hebbian-type learning for the connection weights, and with nonlinear internal feedback, has been shown to extract the statistical principal components of its stationary input pattern sequence, which yields a multi-dimensional, principal component subspace.
