### Path connected set of matrices?

Consider the collection of $n$ by $n$ matrices
$$S=\{ A: A_{ij}\le0,\quad (-1)^{c_i}\det A(P_i;Q_i)<0 \quad \text{for} \quad i=1,\ldots, k\}$$
where $c_i\in \{0,1\}$, $P_i$ and $Q_i$ are disjoint ...

### (Path) connected set of matrices?

Let $N \in \mathfrak{M}_n(\mathbb{C})$ nilpotent, such that there exists $X \in \mathfrak M_n(\mathbb{C})$ with $X^2=N$ (take for instance $n>2$ and $N(1,n)=1$; $N(i,j)=0$ otherwise).
Denote by ...
