Characteristic polynomials of typical matrices are ill-conditioned

Abstract We prove that the expectation of the logarithm of the condition number of each of the zeros of the characteristic polynomial of a complex standard Gaussian matrix is Ω(n). This gives a rigorous justification of the common wisdom in numerical linear algebra that advises against computing eigenvalues via root-finding for characteristic polynomials.
