The mathematical result is well known.

We consider tridiagonal Toeplitz matrices
generated by Laurent polynomials of the form

      a(t) = a−1t−1+a0t0+a1t1.

Choose the coefficients:







The black ellipse (or segment) is the image of the symbol.

The red segment is the Schmidt and Spitzer set.

The yellow points are the eigenvalues of the Toeplitz matrix Tn(a).
