gives the n×n Toeplitz matrix with first row and first column being successive integers.


gives the Toeplitz matrix whose first column consists of elements c1, c2, .

ToeplitzMatrix[{c1,c2,,cm},{r1,r2,, rn}]

gives the Toeplitz matrix with elements ci down the first column, and ri across the first row.


  • The element r1 must be the same as c1. »

Properties & Relations  (4)

Size-20 Toeplitz matrix:

ToeplitzMatrix[{c1,c2,}] is Hermitian if c1 is real:

has all real eigenvalues:

is diagonalizable by a unitary matrix:

ToeplitzMatrix[c,r] is a circulant matrix when r=RotateRight[Reverse[c]]:

The eigenvalues can be found from:

where is the Fourier matrix and is DiagonalMatrix[v]:

HankelMatrix and ToeplitzMatrix are related by reversed identity matrix:

Possible Issues  (1)

When r1 is not the same as c1, the value of c1 is used and r1 ignored:
