### Product $PVPVP$ is elementwise nonnegative?

Let $P\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times n}$ be the inverse of a positive definite M-matrix and $V\in \mathbb{R}^{n\times n}$ be any diagonal matrix. Prove (or disprove) that $PVPVP$ is elementwise nonnegative.

### Is there an efficient algorithm to check whether a matrix is symmetrizable using only permutation matrix?

Is there any known efficient algorithm (something that works better than brute-force algorithm) to check that given a $(0,1)$-$d \times d$ matrix $A$, is there a permutation matrix $P$ of the same ...

### M-matrix with nonconstant entries properties

I have a matrix $J(x)$ with $J_{ij}(x)=f_{ij}(x)$ where vector $x$ is $x=x_1, x_2, ..., x_m$. I have shown that $J(x)$ is an M-matrix for all $x$. There is known review paper by Plemmons (1977) of 40 ...

### inverse M-matrix times mixed-sign vector

Recently a colleague and I came across this unusual phenomenon.
Take $M\in\mathbb{R}^{n\times n}$ a singular irreducible M-matrix, and $b\in\mathbb{R}^{n}$ such that the system $Mx=b$ is solvable ...

### When is a Schur complement an $M$-matrix?

Let $F=\begin{bmatrix}A & B \\\\ B^{T} & D\end{bmatrix}$ be symmetric and strictly diagonally dominant (thus an $H$-matrix). I also know that $B>0$ entrywise. What I am trying to show is ...

### Irreducible non-singular M-matrices and complex numbers

It is well known that a non-singular M-matrix that is irreducible has a strictly positive inverse (all entries $>0$).
An M-matrix is a matrix that has eigenvalues with positive real part, and the ...
