given this matrix(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] x_{1} + 2 x_{2} - 2x_{3} =7 [/tex]

[tex] x_{1} + x_{2} + x_{3} =2 [/tex]

[tex] 2x_{1} + 2x_{2} + x_{3} =5 [/tex]

Show taht [itex] \rho(T_{g}) = 2 [/itex] where rho represenets the spectral radius for this matrix

Tg represents the matrix formed from teh Gauss Seidel method

i found Tg to be like this

[tex] \left(\begin{array}{c|ccc}0&-2&-2&7\\-1&0&-1&2\\-2&-2&0&5\end{array}\right) [/tex]

the Matrix Tg in question is

[tex] \left(\begin{array}{ccc}0&-2&-2\\-1&0&-1\\-2&-2&0\end{array}\right) [/tex]

spectral radius is the maximum of the eigenvalues. But for this matrix the eigenvalues i obtained were all zero. (Am i wrong here, do you wnat me to show the working?)

So how can the spectral radius be 2??

Please help! Your help is greatly appreciated!
