1. Introduction

Toeplitz matrices arise in many different theoretical and applicative fields, in the mathematical modeling of all the problems where some sort of shift invariance occurs in terms of space or of time. As in computation of spline functions, time series analysis, signal and image processing, queueing theory, polynomial and power series computations and many other areas, typical problems modelled by Toeplitz matrices are the numerical solution of certain differential and integral equations [1] - [5] .

Lots of article have been written so far, which concern estimates for spectral norms of Toeplitz matrices, which have connections with signal and image processing, time series analysis and many other problems [6] - [8] . Akbulak and Bozkurt found lower and upper bounds for the spectral norms of Toeplitz matrices with classical Fibonacci and Lucas numbers entries in [9] . Shen gave upper and lower bounds for the spectral norms of Toeplitz matrices with k-Fibonacci and k-Lucas numbers entries in [10] .

In this paper, we derive expressions of spectral norms for r-Toeplitz matrices. We explain some preliminaries and well-known results. We thicken the identities of estimations for spectral norms of r-Toeplitz matrices.
