# Abstract

Let A be an $n × n$ complex matrix. Assume the determinantal curve $V A = { [ ( x , y , z ) ] ∈ CP 2 : F A ( x , y , z ) = det ( x ℜ ( A ) + y ℑ ( A ) + z I n ) = 0 }$ is a rational curve. The Fiedler formula provides a complex symmetric matrix S satisfying $F S ( x , y , z ) = F A ( x , y , z )$ . It is also known that every Toeplitz matrix is unitarily similar to a symmetric matrix. In this paper, we investigate the unitary similarity of the symmetric matrix S and the matrix A in the Fiedler theorem for a specific parametrized family of $4 × 4$ nilpotent Toeplitz matrices A. We show that there are either one or at least three unitarily inequivalent symmetric matrices which admit the determinantal representation of the ternary from $F A ( x , y , z )$ associated to the specific $4 × 4$ nilpotent Toeplitz matrices.
