For an n-by-n matrix A, we determine when the numerical ranges W(Ak), k≥1, of powers of A are all equal to each other. More precisely, we show that this is the case if and only if A is unitarily similar to a direct sum B⊕C, where B is idempotent and C satisfies W(Ck)⊆W(B)for all k≥1. We then consider, for each n≥1, the smallest integer kn for which every n-by-n matrix A with W(A)=W(Ak)for all k, 1≤k≤kn, has an idempotent direct summand. For each n≥1, let pn be the largest prime less than or equal to n+1. We show that (1)kn≥pn for all n, (2)if A is normal of size n, then W(A)=W(Ak)for all k, 1≤k≤pn, implies A having an idempotent summand, and (3)k1=2 and k2=k3=3. These lead us to ask whether kn=pn holds for all n≥1.
