The notion of a transfer (or T -transform) is central in the theory of majorization. For instance, it lies behind the characterization of majorization in terms of doubly stochastic matrices. We introduce a new type of majorization transfer called L-transforms and prove some of its properties. Moreover, we discuss how L-transforms give a new perspective on Ryser’s algorithm for constructing (0; 1)-matrices with given row and column sums.

The systems of an arbitrary number of linear inequalities OVer a real locally convex space have been classified in three classes, namely: consistent, weakly inconsistent and strongly inconsistent, i.e. having ordinary solutions, weak solutions or notsolutions respectively. In this paper, the third type is divided in two classes: strict-strongly and quasi-strongly inconsistent and is given a topology over a quotient space of the set of systems over finite- dimensional spaces, that yields a set of...

En este artículo aplicamos la condición de Mazur-Orlicz para extender a espacios normados algunos resultados de consistencia de desigualdades lineales (s.d.l.) en Rn. Asimismo, obtenemos condiciones para la consistencia de s.d.l. en un espacio localmente convexo, cuando las soluciones pertenecen a ciertos subconjuntos del dual topológico.

Fault tolerant control for uncertain systems with time varying state-delay is studied in this paper. Based on sliding mode controller design, a fault tolerant control method is proposed. By means of the feasibility of some linear matrix inequalities (LMIs), delay dependent sufficient condition is derived for the existence of a linear sliding surface which guarantees quadratic stability of the reduced-order equivalent system restricted to the sliding surface. A reaching motion controller, which can...

Our purpose is to present a number of new facts about the structure of semipositive matrices, involving patterns, spectra and Jordon form, sums and products, and matrix equivalence, etc. Techniques used to obtain the results may be of independent interest. Examples include: any matrix with at least two columns is a sum, and any matrix with at least two rows, a product, of semipositive matrices. Any spectrum of a real matrix with at least $2$ elements is the spectrum of a square semipositive matrix,...

A well-known theorem of Rabin yields a dimensional lower bound on the width of complete polynomial proofs of a system of linear algebraic inequalities. In this note we investigate a practically motivated class of systems where the same lower bound can be obtained on the width of almost all (noncomplete) linear proofs. The proof of our result is based on the Helly Theorem.

We investigate solution sets of a special kind of linear inequality systems. In particular, we derive characterizations of these sets in terms of minimal solution sets. The studied inequalities emerge as information inequalities in the context of Bayesian networks. This allows to deduce structural properties of Bayesian networks, which is important within causal inference.
