# Strictly diagonally dominant hermitian matrices eigenvalues sign

Let $A\in \mathcal{M}_{n\times n}(\mathbb{C})$ be a strictly diagonally dominant hermitian matrix.

My main goal is to tell how many positive eingenvalues $A$ has in terms of its leading diagonal entries $a_{ii}$.

To do this it suffices to show that every Gershgorin disc contains at least one eigenvalue.

And to prove the above statement it suffices that any two Gershgorin discs do not intersect. But I'm not sure the last statement true, nor can I prove it.

Any help?

Theorem If the union of $k$ Gerschgorin discs is disjoint from the union of the other $n-k$ discs then the former union contains exactly $k$ and the latter $n-k$ eigenvalues of $A$. (Wikipedia reference with proof).
