### Problem involving the Spectral Mapping theorem.

Consider the following problem: Let $T$ be a bounded operator in a Banach space $X$. Use the Spectral Mapping theorem to show that $|\lambda^n|\le\|T^n\|$ for all $\lambda\in\sigma(T).$ Here's ...

### Proposed proof Decomposition theorem

Let $\mathcal{A}$ be a unital Banach algebra. I want to prove that if $a \in \mathcal{A}$ and spectrum $\sigma(a) = \sigma_{1} \cup \sigma_{2}$ where $\sigma_{1} \cap \sigma_{2} = \emptyset$, ...

### What defines a Pseudospectral Method?

I'm trying to understand pseudospectral methods in the context of solving PDEs. However, I can't seem to find a solid definition for this. Is it simply a general term for solving a problem in parts: ...
