A new series of conjectures and open questions in optimization and matrix analysis

Jean-Baptiste Hiriart-Urruty (2009)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

We present below a new series of conjectures and open problems in the fields of (global) Optimization and Matrix analysis, in the same spirit as our recently published paper [J.-B. Hiriart-Urruty, Potpourri of conjectures and open questions in Nonlinear analysis and Optimization. SIAM Review 49 (2007) 255–273]. With each problem come a succinct presentation, a list of specific references, and a view on the state of the art of the subject.

A note on majorization transforms and Ryser’s algorithm

Geir Dahl (2013)

Special Matrices

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.

A p-adic Perron-Frobenius theorem

Robert Costa, Patrick Dynes, Clayton Petsche (2016)

Acta Arithmetica

We prove that if an n×n matrix defined over ℚ ₚ (or more generally an arbitrary complete, discretely-valued, non-Archimedean field) satisfies a certain congruence property, then it has a strictly maximal eigenvalue in ℚ ₚ, and that iteration of the (normalized) matrix converges to a projection operator onto the corresponding eigenspace. This result may be viewed as a p-adic analogue of the Perron-Frobenius theorem for positive real matrices.

Aggregation/disaggregation method for safety models

Štěpán Klapka, Petr Mayer (2002)

Applications of Mathematics

The paper concerns the possibilities for mathematical modelling of safety related systems (equipment oriented on safety). Some mathematical models have been required by the present European Standards for the railway transport. We are interested in the possibility of using Markov’s models to meet these Standards. In the text an example of using that method in the interlocking equipment life cycle is given. An efficient aggregation/disaggregation method for computing some characteristics of Markov...

Asymptotics for weakly dependent errors-in-variables

Michal Pešta (2013)

Kybernetika

Linear relations, containing measurement errors in input and output data, are taken into account in this paper. Parameters of these so-called errors-in-variables (EIV) models can be estimated by minimizing the total least squares (TLS) of the input-output disturbances. Such an estimate is highly non-linear. Moreover in some realistic situations, the errors cannot be considered as independent by nature. Weakly dependent ( α - and ϕ -mixing) disturbances, which are not necessarily stationary nor identically...
