Abstract

Let p be a prime number. There exists a finite version of the complex numbers that have p2 elements, which we call F. Firstly, we will discuss how to compute unit vectors whose coefficients are in F. The numerical range can be understood as a map from the unit sphere to the complex plane F. By using these unit vectors, we will demonstrate plots of the numerical range for various matrices A, and various dimensions n, and primes p. For n > 3 and p > 7, this process is very computationally intensive; consequently, we will discuss the algorithms involved. Lastly, we will explore situations in which the numerical range is the whole set F.
