4 Tree Sign Patterns of Small Order that Allow an Eventually Positive Matrix

Authors: Ber-Lin Yu, Jie Cui, Hong Cheng, Zhengfeng Yu

Abstract:

A sign pattern is a matrix whose entries belong to the set {+,−, 0}. An n-by-n sign pattern A is said to allow an eventually positive matrix if there exist some real matrices A with the same sign pattern as A and a positive integer k0 such that Ak > 0 for all k ≥ k0. It is well known that identifying and classifying the n-by-n sign patterns that allow an eventually positive matrix are posed as two open problems. In this article, the tree sign patterns of small order that allow an eventually positive matrix are classified completely.

Keywords: tree, Sign pattern, Eventually positive matrix

3 Construction Methods for Sign Patterns Allowing Nilpotence of Index k

Authors: Jun Luo

Abstract:

In this paper, the smallest such integer k is called by the index (of nilpotence) of B such that Bk = 0. In this paper, we study sign patterns allowing nilpotence of index k and obtain four methods to construct sign patterns allowing nilpotence of index at most k, which generalizes some recent results.

Keywords: Sign pattern, Nilpotence, Jordan block

2 Some Results of Sign patterns Allowing Simultaneous Unitary Diagonalizability

Authors: Xin-Lei Feng, Ting-Zhu Huang

Abstract:

Allowing diagonalizability of sign pattern is still an open problem. In this paper, we make a carefully discussion about allowing unitary diagonalizability of two sign pattern. Some sufficient and necessary conditions of allowing unitary diagonalizability are also obtained.

Keywords: eigenvalue, Sign pattern, unitary diagonalizability, allowing diagonalizability
