N2 - or an n-by-n matrix A, its Crawford number c(A) (resp., generalized Crawford number C(A)) is, by definition, the distance from the origin to its numerical range W(A) (resp., the boundary of its numerical range ∂W(A)). It is shown that if A has eigenvalues λ1,⋯, λn arranged so that |λ 1|≥⋯≥|λn|, then lim kc(Ak)1/k (resp., limkC(A k)1/k) equals 0 or |λn| (resp., |λj| for some j, 1≤j≤n). For a normal A, more can be said, namely, lim kc(A(Ak)1/k=|λn| (resp., limkC((Ak)1/k=|λj| for some j, 3≤j≤n). In these cases, the above possible values can all be assumed by some A.
