The authors continue their investigation of families of symmetric and antisymmetric predictor polynomials in connection with Hermitian Toeplitz matrices and associated reflection coefficients.
These polynomials satisfy a three-term recurrence relation, and analogies with the classical theory of orthogonal polynomials. The important problem of computing the zeros of the highest-degree symmetric polynomial is shown to be equivalent to the eigenvalue problem for a unitary Hessenberg matrix.
For real data (reflection coefficients), the problem can be further transformed to the eigenvalue problem for a symmetric tridiagonal matrix.
