Is there a specific name for matrices with nonsingular principal submatrices?

-

I've heard them called "strongly nonsingular matrices" in numerical linear algebra. Google that and you'll find some literature.

-

"matrices with Gauss decomposition" is the shortest thing that comes to mind. I mean other than $B_-TB_+$.
