Abstract:

The method of Special Choice, a well-known method for finding lower bounds for the eigenvalues of linear operators in a Hilbert space, is applied to a particular matrix problem. The eigenvalues of the finite difference approximation for the vibration of a square clamped plate are bounded below using the eigenvalues of the finite difference approximation for the vibrations of a square simply supported plate, which are known. The results are numerically disappointing, but the idea of the approach may have other applications. Author
