For single splittings of Hermitian positive definite matrices, there are well-known convergence and comparison theorems. This paper gives new convergence and comparison results for double splittings of Hermitian positive definite matrices.

Keywords: Hermitian positive definite matrix; convergence theorem; comparison theorem; double splitting
