Abstract

For standard eigenvalue problems, closed-form expressions for the condition numbers of a multiple eigenvalue are known. In particular, they are uniformly 1 in the Hermitian case and generally take di�erent values in the non-Hermitian case. We consider the generalized eigenvalue problem and identify the condition numbers. Our main result is that a multiple eigenvalue generally has multiple condition numbers, even in the Hermitian de�nite case. The condition numbers are characterized in terms of the singular values of the outer product of the corresponding left and right eigenvectors.
