### Growth rates of ‘sub-traces’ of matrices

Consider an aperiodic, non-negative and non-zero $m\times m$ matrix $A$. Here aperiodic means that there exists an integer $n$ such that every entry of $A^n$ is strictly positive. By the Perron–...

### Weird transportation polytope

I'm looking to compute extremal points of a weird polytope. This polytope contains all matrices with positive entries $A \in \mathcal M_{n,m}\left(\mathbb R_+\right)$ such that: every row sum except ...

### On the real and finite field rank of a $0/1$ matrix - II

Let $M\in\{-\ell,\dots,-1,0,+1,\dots,+\ell\}^{n\times n}$ be a matrix of rank $r$ where $\ell\geq1$ such that there is a permutation matrix in $\{0,1\}^{m\times m}$ of order $2\ell$. Fix a permutation ...

### Non-diagonalizable positive matrices

Let $n\geq 3$ and $E_n$ be the set of $n\times n$ matrices $A$ satisfying the $3$ following properties: $\bullet$ its entries $(a_{i,j})$ are positive integers. $\bullet$ the eigenvalues of $A$ are ...

### Frobenius normal form of a doubly stochastic matrix

If $A \in M_n(\mathbb{C})$, then $A$ is called reducible if there is a permuation matrix $P$ such that $$P^\top A P = \begin{bmatrix} A_{11} & A_{12} \\ 0 & A_{22} \end{bmatrix},$$ in ...

### Is there a way to turn a non convex set to a convex one? [closed]

Perhaps the question is rather vague, but if we are given a non-convex set S, can we construct some invertible mapping f so that f(x) becomes a convex set? In my problem , I am given a set of matrix ...

### Which zero-diagonal matrices contain the all-one vector in their columns' conic hull?

Let $A$ be a non-negative zero-diagonal invertible matrix. Which $A$ make the following assertions true, which are all equivalent: The all-one vector $j$ is contained in the conic hull of $col(A)$. ...

### Is this proof of Perron's theorem correct, and if so is it original?

A few years ago, I came up with this proof of Perron's theorem for a class presentation: https://pi.math.cornell.edu/~web6720/Perron-Frobenius_Hannah%20Cairns.pdf I've written an outline of it below ...

### The largest eigenvalue of a binary matrix with specific density

I would like to find the largest eigenvalue of an $n \times n$ binary matrix of density $p$, i.e., with $p n^{2}$ ones and $(1-p) n^{2}$ zeros. Any idea or reference is welcome.

### A Perron-Frobenius problem

Let $A$ be an irreducible nonnegative matrix with column sums equal to 1. Let $b\in R^n$ have components summing to 0, and let $u$ be the solution of $u=Au+b$ with components summing to 1 (unique ...
I'll give two equivalent statements of the setup, then give my questions. Fix integers $M \leq N$ and define the Vandermonde-like matrix $V_{M,N}[i,j] = (1 - \frac{i}{M})^{j-1}$ for $i \in \{1,2,\... 7 votes 1 answer 1k views ### Determinant of some covariance matrix (Gaussian kernel process) Let$x_1,\dots,x_p$be$p$points in$\mathbb{R}^n$($n\geq 2$) with$x_1=0$. Consider the symmetric matrix$M(x)=(m_{ij}(x))_{1\leq i,j\leq p}$where$m_{ij}(x) = \exp(-\frac{1}{2}\Vert x_i - x_j\...
