 Title

On some norm inequalities involving the commutator and XY  YXT
 English Abstract

Show / Hidden
Let X and Y be any n×n complex matrices, k·kF be the Frobenius norm and k · k(2),2 be the (2, 2)norm defined by kXk(2),2 = (s 2 1 (X) + s 2 2 (X)) 1 2 , where s1(X) ≥ · · · ≥ sn(X) are the singular values of X. Based on the paper [A. B¨ottcher and D. Wenzel, The Frobenius norm and the commutator, Linear Algebra Appl. 429 (2008) 18641885], a common approach is found for proving the following three inequalities: kXY − Y XkF ≤ √ 2kXk(2),2kY kF , kXY − Y XT kF ≤ √ 2kXk(2),2kY kF and kXY − Y XT kF ≤ √ 2kXkF kY k(2),2. The first two are known and the third one is new. Their equality cases are also determined. In particular it is found that, while there are common analogous equality cases, the third inequality admits an equality case that the other two do not have as a corresponding counterpart.
