Abstract: Let $ \mathcal M_n$ be the algebra of $ n\times n$ complex matrices, and for $ x\in\mathcal M_n$ denote by $ \sigma(x)$ and $ \rho(x)$ the spectrum and spectral radius of $ x$ respectively. Let $ D$ be a domain in $ \mathcal M_n$ containing 0, and let $ F:D\to\mathcal M_n$ be a holomorphic map. We prove: (1) if $ \sigma(F(x))\cap\sigma(x)\ne\emptyset$ for $ x\in D$, then $ \sigma(F(x))=\sigma(x)$ for $ x\in D$; (2) if $ \rho(F(x))=\rho(x)$ for $ x\in D$, then again $ \sigma(F(x))=\sigma(x)$ for $ x\in D$. Both results are special cases of theorems expressing the irreducibility of the spectrum $ \sigma(x)$ near $ x=0$.
