**Abstract**: Let N be a 3 x 3 normal matrix. We investigate the sets W-k(Pi) (N) = {Pi(k)(l=1)(UNU*)ll : U epsilon U(3)} where U(3) is the group of 3 x 3 unitary matrices and I <= k <= 3. Geometric properties of these sets are studied, namely, star-shapedness and simple connectedness are investigated. A method for the numerical estimation of W-k(Pi) (N) is also provided for normal matrices of size 3
