### Condition for block symmetric real matrix eigenvalues to be real

I have a (2nx2n) block symmetric matrix that in the simplest case (n=2) looks like:
$$
M_2 = \begin{bmatrix}
a_1 & 0 & b_{1,2} & -b_{1,2}\\\
0 & -a_1 & b_{1,2} & -b_{1,2}\\\
...

### Singular Value Decomposition of Noisy Matrices

I am an engineer who makes measurements of a variable over a grid
of, say, $m\times n$. Since these are actual measurements, the true
values are always corrupted by noise, and what I measure is a ...

### Checking whether this would be bounded

It may be better to post this question here. Assume that $M$ is an $m$ by $m$ ($m$ is an even number) symmetric
positive-semi-definite matrix with exactly $m/2$ positive eigenvalues
and every entry of ...
