In an earlier paper, the author derived generalized Rayleigh-quotient formulas for
the real parts, imaginary parts, and moduli of the eigenvalues of diagonalizable
matrices. More precisely, max-, min-max-, min-, and max-min-formulas were
obtained. In this paper, we extend these results to the eigenvalues of linear
nonsymmetric compact operators with simple eigenvalues in a Hilbert space. As
an application, a new formula for the spectral radius is derived. An example
arising from a boundary value problem in Mathematical Physics illustrates the
general results, and numerical computations underpin the theoretical findings.
In addition, the Euler column is treated from the area of Elastomechanics, which
is complemented by references to other examples from this area.
