We obtain an elementary geometrical proof of the classical Perron-Frobenius theorem for non-negative matrices A by using the Brouwer fixed-point theorem and by studying the dynamics of the action of A on convenient subsets of Rn.

In this expository paper, some recent developments in majorization theory are reviewed. Selected topics on group majorizations, group-induced cone orderings, Eaton triples, normal decomposition systems and similarly separable vectors are discussed. Special attention is devoted to majorization inequalities. A unified approach is presented for proving majorization relations for eigenvalues and singular values of matrices. Some methods based on the Chebyshev functional and similarly separable vectors...

This paper concerns inequalities like TrA ≤ TrB, where A and B are certain Hermitian complex matrices and Tr stands for the trace. In most cases A and B will be exponential or logarithmic expressions of some other matrices. Due to the interest of the author in quantum statistical mechanics, the possible applications of the trace inequalities will be commented from time to time. Several inequalities treated below have been established in the context of Hilbert space operators or operator algebras....
