This correspondence investigates the continuity behavior of the spectral factorization mapping for trigonometric polynomials. It is clear that this factorization mapping is continuous on the space of all trigonometric polynomials of a fixed degree N which means that a small perturbation in the given spectrum yields always a bounded error in the spectral factor. The correspondence derives a lower bound on the continuity constant of the spectral factorization mapping which shows that the error in the spectral factor grows at least proportional with the logarithm of the degree N of the given spectrum.
