# Questions tagged [matrix-theory]

Matrix theory is the study of matrices as concrete objects, rather than as abstract linear operators between vector spaces (whose study belongs to linear algebra). For instance, this involves matrix factorizations and decompositions, nonnegative matrices and Perron-Frobenius theory, Schur complements, structured and special matrices, matrix functions and equations.

### Is this “semi-tensor product” something recently invented? Are there other usages of it?

The context: I was reading a paper in which they used the following definition called "Semi-Tensor Product" (STP) or "Cheng" product (In honor to its "inventor" D. Cheng):...

### Eigenvalues of a block matrix with zero diagonal blocks

Suppose $A$ is a $k_1\times k_2$ matrix with real entries, $k_1<k_2$. Let $M$ be the matrix $$M:=\begin{pmatrix} 0_{k_1} & A\\ A^\top & 0_{k_2} \end{pmatrix},$$ ...

### Routh-Hurwitz criterion for matrices

The Routh-Hurwitz criterion explicitly specifies a finite set of inequalities on the coefficients of a polynomial, necessary and sufficient that all zeros lie in the unit circle or in the left half ...

### Expressing a polynomial as the determinant of a matrix of linear forms

I have heard that it's a well known result (in theoretical computer science?) that if we have a polynomial $p(t_1,\dots,t_n)$ over $\mathbb Q$, we can find matrices $M_0,\dots,M_n/\mathbb Q$ such that ...

### A lower-bound on matrix-function with vector product

I am currently trying to show that a sequence of homeomorphisms converges to some limiting homeomorphism using Anderson's the inductive convergence criterion. However I can't explicitly compute the ...
