A Note on Potentially Power-Positive Sign Patterns

Authors: Ber-Lin Yu, Ting-Zhu Huang


In this note, some properties of potentially powerpositive sign patterns are established, and all the potentially powerpositive sign patterns of order ≤ 3 are classified completely.

Keywords: Sign pattern, potentially eventually positive sign pattern, potentially power-positive sign pattern
